Coles supporting funding initiative for sick children

Coles has launched a national fundraising campaign with Hospitals United for Sick Kids to help children in hospitals get home to the things they miss.

Funds raised will aid various projects and initiatives undertaken by Hospitals United for Sick Kids partners, including purchasing advanced medical equipment, enhancing children’s hospital environments, and expanding ‘Hospital in the Home’ services across eight national healthcare institutions.

Coles will donate 50 cents from every Cucina Matese pasta variety product sold in Coles supermarkets across Australia and on Coles Online to Hospitals United for Sick Kids to a maximum of $150,000.

Coles Group general manager corporate and Indigenous affairs Sally Fielke said Coles is proud of its community partnership with Hospitals United for Sick Kids.

“Coles is delighted to have partnered with Hospitals United for Sick Kids for over five years to help support sick kids and their families in their time of need,” said Fielke.

Coles announced in addition to its continuous aid through its Mum’s Sause range, which donates 50 cents from each pasta and pizza sauce sold year-round, the sales of Cucina Matese pasta contribute further to Hospitals United for Sick Kids.

Customers can also support the cause by purchasing a $2 donation card during the two-week campaign at the checkout.

Coles ambassador Michael Weldon, who helped create the range of Mum’s Sause pasta and pizza sauces, encouraged customers to get behind the cause.

Coles suppliers Swisse Wellness and Arnott’s will also be supporting the campaign and will donate 50 cents to Hospitals United for Sick Kids when customers purchase any Swisse Vitamins product (to a maximum of $60,000) and Arnott’s Tiny Teddy Biscuits Variety 15 pack or Arnott’s Shapes Variety Pack Biscuits 15 pack (to a maximum of $35,000) at Coles supermarkets or Coles Online between Wednesday, 10 April to Tuesday, 23 April 2024.
