Bunnings Warehouse is supercharging its usual sausage sizzle, to support a few Aussie communities that are doing it pretty tough.
Next Friday, November 22, all of the hardware giant's stores will host a special pre-weekend edition of their legendary snag sessions, raising coin for those impacted by drought and the current bushfires.
All of the day's sausage profits will go to to Givit, a national non-profit that works with charities and community groups to connect disadvantaged people with the things that they need. The organisation also works with local councils and state governments to assist communities during disasters and emergencies — of which there are several happening at the moment.
Some areas of the country have been struggling with a years-long drought and, this week, bushfires have destroyed hundreds of homes, and displaced thousands of people, across NSW and Queensland. Dangerous fire conditions continue today and into the weekend, too, with out-of-control fires still burning in both states.
Luckily, Victoria has come away fairly unscathed from this recent bout of bushfires, but it's only the start of what's expected to be a hot and dry summer. For updates and advice on Victorian bushfires, head to the CFA website.
So, on Friday, grab a snag in bread and show those in need some love.
The sausage sizzles will run from 9am–4pm across all Bunnings Warehouses in Victoria.
