In its third year, the annual initiative forms part of Officeworks’ commitment to help make a positive difference to the communities where its team members live and work. It sees customers given the choice to ‘roundup’ their purchase in-store or donate online, with funds going direct to support the organisations.
This year, due to the significant impact of COVID-19, the focus of the initiative was to assist groups in two important areas: health and education. Officeworks’ 167 store teams selected the organisations they wanted to help based on their connections within their local communities.
Officeworks General Manager Corporate Affairs, Alexandra Staley, said: “Now, more than ever, it is important for us to connect and support the communities where we live and work. For this year’s ‘Round Up to Make a Difference’ we thought it was vital to support local organisations with a focus on health and education.
“It has been really rewarding to see the passion and commitment our store teams have for these organisation and we are delighted with the results of this year. Together, we know we can make a difference to health and education related groups across the country during these challenging times.’’
