Coles Express will thank SES members who have been working hard to keep the community safe in NSW during the devastating floods.
The bright orange colour worn by State Emergency Service (SES) volunteers is unmistakable as they work tirelessly to support communities as they recover from serious flooding in NSW.
To thank them, Coles Express is offering a hot cup of free coffee to SES members from today until April 1.
“Providing a free hot drink to the members who give up their time to help others is a small gesture we can make to ensure they are refreshed along the way,” Coles Express executive general manager Michael Courtney said.
The offer is available to any SES member who is wearing their uniform or shows their ID card and includes any small, medium or large Urban Coffee Culture coffee or hot tea.
Coles has started a fundraising appeal with a $100,000 cash donation and will also match customer donations dollar-for-dollar up to $900,000.
Additionally, the supermarket giant has pledged up to $1 million to a fundraising appeal for flood-affected communities in NSW and Queensland to enable not-for-profit organisation, GIVIT, to provide emergency and household items to local residents.
These include groceries, toiletries, nappies, hygiene products, clothes, bedding, generators and work equipment.
Customers can help communities impacted by the severe storms and flooding by making a donation at any Coles supermarket, Coles liquor store and Coles Express store.
