Coles supermarkets across the Northern Territory and selected regional Western Australia have again partnered with Purple House to celebrate NAIDOC week 2022.
From today until Sunday 10th July, Coles will donate $1 for every customer wearing the colour purple during their shop. Some stores will also be putting on BBQs and bake sales and customers can purchase a $2 donation card at the checkout or round up the price of their grocery shop with a donation. All the money raised will go towards helping our patients get back on country.
The campaign was officially launched today at Coles Darwin CBD with the Hon Natasha Fyles, Chief Minister of the Northern Territory, and a special performance by Yidaki and Tiwi singers. The Coles NT Regional Manager, Daniel Clegg, said “This year’s theme for NAIDOC Week is ‘Get Up, Stand Up, Show Up’ and that’s what we’ll be doing for Purple House by switching our red polos for purple, spreading awareness and raising money with fun in-store activities for team and customers.”
Last year, Coles raised $60,000 for the Purple House and also provided us with a generous grant to fit out a new commercial kitchen which we use to prepare meals for our patients and cater for events at the Purple Shed.
So, if you live in the NT or WA, make sure to shop at Coles this week and help them turn purple for NAIDOC week.
