FOOTT collaboration with Helping Hands supports Yarrawonga Health

FOOTT and Helping Hands have announced their collaboration to support Yarrawonga Health, with the community now able to donate their refund from eligible cans and bottles through Victoria’s Container Deposit Scheme (CDS Vic).

FOOTT Director, Jenny Foott, says that the company is excited to see the Yarrawonga community get on board with CDS Vic.

“There’s a significant number of containers, more than 15,000 a day, six days a week, coming through our Yarrawonga depot and it’s growing as more of the community get on board” she said.

“We’re thrilled the community has embraced this opportunity, as it diminishes recyclable waste in landfills and also has the potential to benefit local organisations like Helping Hands.

“FOOTT encourages people to donate their cans and bottles to causes within the Yarrawonga community and we are thrilled to be supporting the communities in which we operate”.

Yarrawonga Health’s Community Engagement Manager, Jo Spence, explains that the funds raised through Helping Hands support Yarrawonga Health in various ways.

“Helping Hands, the fundraising arm of Yarrawonga Health, assists with the provision of medical equipment and other needs that will enhance care provided to the Yarrawonga/Mulwala and surrounding community.

“We’re asking people to bring their eligible containers to the FOOTT depot, and consider donating those funds to Helping Hands, so we can continue to support our community with additional equipment and services at Yarrawonga Health”.

The Yarrawonga CDS Vic FOOTT depot is open Monday to Saturday from 8am to 4pm, at 97 Benalla-Yarrawonga Road. Click here to find out more.
