It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas for those in the Tuggeranong region.
The MAX team at Tuggeranong reached out and fed the masses at a barbecue lunch on 6 December, with the local community coming together with local employers, job seekers along with local representatives from food rescue charity OzHarvest.
So far, the Tuggeranong team have found almost 400 people work in the region since the #WeAreMAXmas campaign kicked off in October.
For every job placed before Christmas Eve, MAX will contribute $5 to OzHarvest, helping provide crucial funds to continue to feed and support those in need these holidays. The barbecue raised a further $125 to be donated to the charity.
“Every dollar donated to OzHarvest can provide two meals for people in need,” CEO and Founder Ronni Kahn said.
“Thanks to this donation from MAX we will be able to provide 250 meals to help feed those in need this Christmas,” she said.
Founded in 2004, OzHarvest is the leading food rescue organisation in Australia collecting surplus food from various food providers including fruit and vegetable markets, supermarkets, cinemas and hotels to name a few.
