Cleanaway sponsored Foodbank WA with 100 bins to deliver food to people in need in Western Australia

Cleanaway continued our annual holiday season support of Foodbank WA and Rotary Club Food Drive by providing 100 bins for collecting donated food to feed people in need. The bins donated by Cleanaway enabled the Rotary Clubs to collect 6,448kgs of assorted cans and other food items, over 1,300kgs more than last year. This is equivalent to 11,618 meals to support vulnerable groups.

Greg Hebble, CEO of Foodbank WA said that the current economic climate means that more people are turning to charity than ever before, “We thank you for your valued assistance and we understand that there are many worthwhile causes requiring support and we are so grateful your company has gone out of your way to provide outstanding savings for Foodbank, and in doing so, assisting those in need this Christmas.”

Cleanaway driver Jatinda Singh was also singled out by Foodbank WA as a key contributor to the Food Drive. Foodbank WA said, “Jatinda has been very polite, courteous, friendly and helpful with all the staff at the warehouse and collection points. He has gone above and beyond what would be normally expected from a driver and deserves a shout out for his efforts.”

Jatinda was recognised with a Cleanaway Employee of the Month award.
