As a response to the flood crisis in NSW and Queensland, Blundstone has donated 1,130 pairs of boots to support communities affected and clean-up efforts.
Right now, communities and volunteers are in desperate need of good, hardwearing footwear. Our focus has been on getting as much stock as quickly as possible to the flood-affected areas. We are working directly with charities and businesses that have the facilities on the ground to ensure our boots get into the hands of those that need them most.
We are working directly with Red Cross, Lismore Council, Boots for Bushies and local Byron Business BAY Active to distribute these products. We are also in communication with various other organisations to get the message out on distribution centre locations.
We would like to thank our freight partner FedEx for their generous donation of freight to get our boots to affected areas.
In addition to boots, Blundstone has donated $40,000 to the Salvation Army to support their flood appeal (Donate Online | The Salvation Army Australia).
Our thoughts are with all those affected, and we wish them all the best as they rebuild.
