BERNARDI’S; SUPPORTING THE LOCAL COMMUNITY
At Bernardi’s we are very much part of the communities in which we operate. We care deeply for the success of the town and the people who live in it. Our Building Better Communities Program is a way of giving back; to our schools, sporting groups and community organisations.
Since 2011 (when donations started being recorded), the Bernardi family have donated over $600,000 to local charities.
We’ve assisted Preschools to fund new buildings, hospitals to launch new departments and primary schools to develop special education units, erect new shade structures and plant edible gardens. We’ve assisted Girl Guides to renovate their halls, Royal Far West to deliver specialist health treatment and high schools to develop their library spaces. The list goes on and on.
The impact of these donations goes on to greatly benefit the wider community and we feel so proud to help important projects come to life.
In 2019, we’re thrilled to be giving away a grand total of $50,000 sponsorship – $10,000 for each community in which our stores are based.
Every six months, the Bernardi’s team will assess applications and choose three worthy beneficiaries per store in Forbes, West Wyalong, Blayney, Bathurst and Wagga, to share in $5,000 sponsorship, but it’s up to our customers to decide who will receive their contribution.
HOW IT WORKS:
- Each time you go through the checkout you will receive a token.
- Choose one of three recipients you’d most like to support by placing your token in their tub.
- At the end of the fundraising period, the beneficiary with the most tokens will receive 50% of the fundraising total ($2500), the next; 30% ($1500) and the final will receive 20% ($1000).
You can nominate a worthy cause by clicking our ‘Nominate to become a beneficiary’ button below and filling in the form. Every nomination will be considered and we will be in touch if yours is chosen.
Alternatively, if you’d like to host a fundraising BBQ in store, you can also apply below. We will happily help out with free and cost-price supplies and you take 100% of the profits.
Thanks for helping us to make this community such a wonderful one.
The Bernardi Family.
