AUZ Country Carriers is proud to announce in 2015, we have partnered with two local charities to support homelessness. From this year, all AUZ Country Customers will be able to organise non-perishable food & toiletries donations as part of your regular pick-ups. The AUZ Country depots in Dandenong South & Morwell will act as collection points for our partnering charities. People can also donate at either one of our depots during standard office hours:
Dandenong Depot: 8am-5pm
Morwell Depot: 7am-4pm
For any donations, we kindly request to clearly label the box as “Donations“, & with your company name (so we can thank-you). There is no need to book in the donations, just hand them to your friendly driver as part of your pick-up. Alternatively, you can drop off donations at one of our depots during our standard office hours.
We kindly request that all non-perishable food donations have atleast 6mths left before expiry, and unfortunately, we are unable to accept anything pre-used, already opened, or damaged (eg. dented tins, anything with rust), as we can’t distribute these items.
We aim to help feed and support hundreds, if not thousands of homeless, disadvantaged or people in crisis every year through our valued network & customer’s support.
