Woolworths Northam to donate all profits from fresh food sales this Saturday to support drought-affected Aussie farmers

All profits from sales in the fresh department at Woolworths Northam and supermarkets nationwide, this Saturday, August 11, will be donated to Rural Aid’s Buy a Bale appeal in support of farmers impacted by the drought.

Woolworths Northam Store Manager, Hamish Briggs said it has been amazing to see customers rally behind farmers impacted by the drought. 

“In less than a week, Woolworths customers nationally have already donated in excess of $600,000 for Rural Aid’s Buy a Bale appeal through our checkouts nationwide,” Mr Briggs said.

“This generosity is making a real difference in rural communities, and has inspired us to build on our support of Rural Aid’s vital work.

“This means all profits from sales of fruit and veg, meat, the chilled section, bakery and deli at Woolworths Northam, supermarkets nationwide and online this Saturday will help support farmers doing it tough because of the drought.”

Fresh department profits donated on Saturday August 11 will help Rural Aid to fund more stock livestock feed for farmers, household supplies and counselling services.

Avon Valley customers can also donate to the Buy a Bale appeal in store at Woolworths Northam, or any other Woolworths, Woolworths Metro or Woolworths Petrol store, as well as Woolworths Online.
