Fine Shine will hold its annual Charity Car Wash Day on Sunday 19th March, to raise much needed funds to purchase a new van, Hyundai Staria Load in support of AusRelief’s Grocery Drive. Fine Shine will be generously donating every dollar raised from the day including all their overheads. All funds raised through community sponsorship and donations will go towards the purchase of a much needed van.
AusRelief's Grocery Drive works with retail giants such as Woolworths where customers are able to donate non-perishable products into designated food boxes. A total of 23,902 items have been donated to AusRelief in the last financial year alone. Families receive one essential and one non-essential bag per month.
2 million households in Australia have run out of food in the last year due to limited finances. This has meant 464,000 children in NSW & ACT lived in severely food insecure households in the past year! Far too many families are still scrambling to find their feet after two years of COVID lockdowns and closures. There's simply not enough money to pay the mortgage and bills. People who never thought they'd have to ask for help find themselves appealing to organisations for assistance to get by. This shouldn't be happening in one of the wealthiest countries in the world.
There is so much more that we can do collectively. With the help of generous donations from businesses, individuals and the community, AusRelief can expand its efforts to service more families in need.
Fine Shine encourages you to take action - in both big and small ways - to ensure that no child goes to bed hungry. Please visit our Instagram pages to keep up to date with our Carwash Day for the Grocery Drive Campaign.
Remember, our reach is only limited by your generosity.
