The Smith Family Winter Appeal

Ampol has this month launched a new fundraising campaign across its national retail network to raise funds for The Smith Family’s 2021 Winter Appeal. 

At participating Ampol Foodary sites through June and July, 10 cents from the sale of every $2 or $3 Foodary hot coffee will be donated to The Smith Family, and customers can also choose to donate at the register. The campaign delivers on Ampol’s commitment to making a positive impact on the local communities in which it operates.

Joanne Taylor, Executive General Manager, Retail, Brand and Culture, said that Ampol is proud to support the Winter Appeal.

“Ampol is proud of the positive contribution we make in the communities we operate in. The Smith Family’s Winter Appeal is another great example of engaging our people and our customers to make a difference for those in need. As Australia's own fuel and energy brand, it is our passion to support the lives of young Australians and partnering with The Smith Family to support the education of children experiencing disadvantage will drive long-lasting positive impact. “ 

Judy Barraclough, Acting CEO of The Smith Family, said The Smith Family was delighted to have Ampol leveraging its networks to boost the organisation’s 2021 Winter Appeal. 

“Supporting children to achieve at school, year after year, is the best way to help them break the cycle of disadvantage. Funds given by generous donors will go towards extra educational support for more than 12,000 young Australians. This includes a range of numeracy, literacy and mentoring programs delivered outside of school,” she said.

“We’re grateful to have the generous help of Ampol and its customers. Ultimately they’re helping us give more young Australians in need the chance to build aspirations for their futures and reach their full potential.”

Ampol will be supporting The Smith Family to raise funds for the Winter Appeal in more than 800 sites across Australia. At participating Ampol Foodary sites, 10 cents from the sale of every $2 or $3Foodary coffee or other hot beverage will be donated to the cause, and customers can also choose to donate at the register. At other Ampol selected sites, where the coffee offer or donation at check-out is not available, customers can scan a QR code and follow the prompts to donate direct to The Smith Family.
