Community is at the heart of everything we do at DOOLEYS. The current La Nina season has had a tumultuous effect on the NSW community, with the recent floods devastating hundreds of thousands of people. In response, DOOLEYS have donated $50,000 to assist the flood relief efforts in NSW, with $25,000 donations to both Good360 Australia and Disaster Relief Australia. 

 

Good-360-Flood-Relief

 

Good360 Australia works tirelessly with charities and schools to help get the right goods, to the right people at the right time during all stages of a disaster. Since January 2022, Good360 has connected more than 95,000 requested goods, valued at $1.5 million RRP, specifically to flood affected communities in NSW alone. Good360 have a network of 1,081 charity and disadvantaged school members currently in flood impacted areas of NSW, who are ready to connect goods to locals in their community, who have lost everything.

Good360’s approach to Disaster Recovery is strategic and sustainable, with every $5 donated supplying $100 in brand new essentials. DOOLEYS are honoured to provide funding to Good360 who are supporting flood affected communities recover and rebuild, providing long-term hope and dignity.

 

Disaster-Relief-Australia

 

Disaster Relief Australia teams are in flood-affected communities doing some back breaking work to keep the community safe and get residents back into their homes. There is a long road to recovery over the coming weeks and months for thousands of people. The floods have destroyed lives and ripped families apart. Disaster Relief Australia puts teams of skilled military veteran volunteers on the ground to quickly assist in the clean up in these incredibly challenging conditions.

Flood recovery is dirty work: volunteers roll up their sleeves, muck out mud, assist with fence line removal and chainsaw work on dangerous trees, and remove rubbish and debris brought about by the floods. There is a long road to recovery over the coming weeks and months and Disaster Relief Australia are there to help people rebuild their lives.
