Urgent Need: Groceries and grocery vouchers
Many Australians going through a tough time struggle to put food on the table, and times can often be even tougher over the Christmas period.
Vulnerable people, struggling to survive, often rely on community support and charity donations to meet life’s basic needs. These include food, rent, transport and medical supplies. People on low income, living week to week, have a really hard time filling up their pantries. International students, stranded due to COVID-19, need help putting food on the table.
We want to help change this.
There are many incredible support organisations across Australia working all year round to help feed people. These organisations are looking for our support. They are in urgent, and constant, need of grocery supplies.
You can help by providing grocery vouchers or the funds to purchase vouchers, which will be used to provide meals for people doing it tough, and help stock up their pantries for the Christmas period.
Join forces with your work colleagues, school, church, book club, sport team or group of friends to GIVIT Together this festive season and help get life-changing items to people who need them most.
100% of funds received will go towards purchasing groceries and vouchers, locally where possible. Please fill in the form below to donate. Any contributions will make a huge difference!
When we GIVIT Together, we have incredible impact.
International students feel the support through ‘Meals for Mates’
International students stranded in Queensland due to COVID-19 are being supported through a new ‘Meals for Mates’ initiative. GIVIT is working with local supermarkets and Study Queensland to ensure study clusters of international students receive much needed groceries. Through GIVIT, thousands of grocery vouchers are being used to help provide a weekly shop of pantry items to each study cluster.
Breakfast programs serves up food and fun for farm kids
With the ongoing pressures of drought, some farming kids are required to assist on the family property in the morning, putting in hours of work feeding stock and doing general farm duties. They have usually done a day’s work before they even get on the school bus and start the lengthy trip to town.
