Beiersdorf Australia – manufacturer of Nivea and Elastoplast products – have announced a partnership with the country’s largest food and grocery relief organisation.
Foodbank Australia, an organisation that provides food and groceries to more than 2,400 charities and 2,500 schools, received more than 50,000 personal care items from Beiersdorf Australia this month , including hand sanitisers, which will be distributed to those in need in Victoria.
It’s not the first time Beiersdorf and Foodbank have joined forces – earlier this year during the bushfire crisis , Beiersdorf donated thousands of products including Elastoplast essentials and Nivea sun care.
Brianna Casey, CEO of Foodbank Australia said, “We are incredibly grateful for Beiersdorf’s continual support and generous donations of skin and personal care products, and are delighted to be welcoming them as an official national donor.”
Clynton Bartholomeusz, managing director of Beiersdorf Australia said; “For nearly 140 years, we at Beiersdorf have had care at the heart of everything we do. Our purpose, Care Beyond Skin, not only expresses our passion for skincare, but it embodies our commitment to also caring for people and communities in need. That is why we are so pleased to become an official national donor with Foodbank Australia and support the important work they do.”
Beiersdorf teams up with international organisations as well as local authorities to help support those in need – the company has pledged 50 million euros as an immediate international support program to help communities in their fight against COVID-19 pandemic, as well as donation of 1,000,000 litres of disinfectant and at least 5,000,000 Nivea skin and hand care products to medical staff.
