Coles Express will thank State Emergency Service (SES) members who have been working hard to keep the community safe in New South Wales during devastating floods with a free hot coffee or tea at any Coles Express store in NSW or the Australian Capital Territory until 1 April 2021.
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 Express Executive General Manager Michael Courtney says the team is incredibly grateful for the work of the SES.
“This has been such a challenging time for so many in the lead up to Easter. Our team witnesses the tireless work of SES members on the road every day. We know there is a long clean up ahead for everyone in the region. 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,” he says
Coles 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.
Coles customers are able to help communities impacted by the severe storms and flooding in NSW and Queensland by making a donation at any Coles supermarket, Coles liquor store, and Coles Express store.
To provide support together with customers leading up to the Easter period, Coles has kick started the fundraising appeal with a $100,000 cash donation and will also match customer donations dollar-for-dollar up to $900,000.
