Brothers partners with The Good Box
October 19, 2021
Around a month ago Brothers were approached by the Co-founders of The Good Box Gali and Madelyn to see if Brothers would be interested in making a positive difference within the Townsville community.
The Good Box is a social enterprise that creates beautifully packaged gift boxes for people experiencing homelessness in Australia. The Good Box provides support to those suffering from isolation and homelessness.
Brothers Leagues Club are excited to give our support to this foundation. We are proudly sponsoring 120 Good Boxes each month, a total commitment of over $32,000. It marks the single largest charitable donation for Brothers, something that it isn’t lost on CEO Justin Wilkins. “We are always looking to make a positive impact on our local community. After hearing the passion with which these ladies spoke of this cause, the Brothers’ board and myself recognised that this was a partnership we really wanted to explore,” Justin said.
Last week, staff from Brothers and Townsville & Districts Mendi Blackhawks had the opportunity to engage in one of The Good Box engagement programs. During this program, staff have packed 120 of the boxes, which to many felt to be a rewarding experience. Staff then went on a road-trip around Townsville to distribute these boxes to these locations. The charities visited included Sharehouse Youth Programs Inc, Australian Red Cross, Community Information Centre Townsville, TAIHS, Vinnies Australia, Family Emergency Accommodation Townsville Inc, Mission Sustain and more.
