Domino’s stores across Victoria will donate $1 from every pizza sold to Country Fire Authority (CFA) volunteers, by hosting a doughraiser fundraiser on Wednesday, 11 December to raise funds to support members through summer fire seasons.
CFA is a volunteer and community based fire and emergency services organisation. Its members work tirelessly to help protect 3.3 million Victorians, and more than one million homes and properties across the state.
Victorian Franchise Consultant, Ben Oborne, has seen first-hand the devastation fires can cause and said with the fire season ahead, he knew that the local Domino’s community had to do what they could to help, enlisting the assistance of the Victorian franchisees.
“The Domino’s Victoria franchisee community leapt at the chance to raise money for CFA through the positive power of pizza,” Mr Oborne said.
“Owning a business gives store owners an opportunity to give back to the local community in ways they would have never been otherwise able.
“Victoria has a long history of bush and grassfires and relies heavily on CFA to protect its local people and local communities.
“As well as hosting the doughraiser fundraiser, our stores are committed to providing food for communities who have experienced natural disasters and have limited access to food and we are hoping our 81 stores can raise close to $12,000 through the doughraiser.”
Domino’s CEO, Don Meij, is passionate about ensuring all stores get behind natural disasters, such as this.
“Each and every one of our Victorian store owners knows someone, or has been personally affected by the previous vicious summer fires, and they are dedicated to doing what they can to assist this time around,” Mr Meij said.
Mr Meij is asking Victorians to visit their local Domino’s stores on Wednesday 11 December to show their community spirit and throw their support and their tummy’s behind this fantastic initiative.
“I really hope everyone can get behind this great cause by sharing a pizza with their family in supporting the great incredible work the CFA does every day.”
Domino’s Pizza Australia was the first publicly listed pizza chain on the Australian Stock Exchange. With the brand also represented in New Zealand, France, Belgium, The Netherlands and Japan the complete Domino’s group store count now sits over 1,250.
