As the Salesforce Advantage Tour recently hit our region, a very special opportunity came about for Foodbank NSW & ACT. That opportunity was partnering with one of our loyal supporters, Salesforce, to prepare Christmas Hampers for those less fortunate.
As part of the tour in Sydney attendees were asked to help pack some of the hampers which were sponsored by Pardot.
The hampers are a blend of essential staples together with some festive treats to bring some cheer at Christmas time for Aussie families doing it tough.
The Sydney Advantage Tour kicked off with more than 2,500 attendees on the day visitors, partners and staff together helped pack the Christmas Hampers. The boxes filled up faster than we could count and in almost no time we hit the magic 500 hamper target that we had set earlier that day!
To get a sense of what it was like to be a part of the Xmas Hamper packing with Pardot, we’ve compiled this video which captures the action on the day:
Last week in Singapore the enthusiasm was just the same. The Foodbank Singapore team were swamped with food donations to help their cause. Attendees were asked to bring an item of food on the day and all donations went to Foodbank.
As awesome as this effort is, it is sadly only a drop in the ocean. Half a million people seek food relief every month. We work nationally with 2,400 charity partners and 1,000+ schools to provide more than 67,000 students with breakfast – that’s 137,290 school breakfasts every week!
So if you are keen to help out, we are are chasing an overall target of 20,000 hampers this Christmas so please help if you can. The sense of fulfilment will be huge but will sustain until December when you sit down for your Christmas lunch knowing you’ve helped provide for someone else who needs it so very much.
Just $30 could change Christmas for a struggling family! Donate a Christmas Hamper HERE!
To those who have helped already, a Huge special THANK YOU!
