Commonwealth Bank Bundaberg and Childers branch employees have donated $500 to two local organisations as part of a nationwide community donation program.
A bank spokesperson said staff were committed to driving positive change in their communities to make a difference locally and for all Australians.
Commonwealth Bank has again pledged to donate $500,000 nationally over the next few months.
Each Commonwealth Bank branch and customer-facing team was allocated $500 to donate to causes important to their local community.
Commonwealth Bank’s Bundaberg and Childers branch teams voted to support the great work of Riding for the Disabled (RDA) Bundaberg and Camp Gregory Veteran’s Retreat.
“After a challenging start to the year with devastating bushfires and now the coronavirus pandemic, it’s timely to give back to local organisations who do good work in our community,” Bundaberg branch manager Joanne Pryor said.
“We are pleased to support these amazing local organisations.
“Both organisations are doing great things in our local community. RDA Bundaberg told us that our donation will help support a client to ride for an eight-week program.
“Camp Gregory offer support and companionship to current and returned service men and women. It’s fantastic to be able to support both groups in their great work.”
