Good Guy asks you to have your say

Good Guy asks you to have your say Image

Giving back locally is what Paul Roper, proprietor of The Good Guys South Wharf has sought since opening his doors last year. 

His Local Giving Token Box Program is helping worthy causes, enabling customers to play a fundamental role in the process.

Paul has raised over $5000 since last December when his store introduced the Token Box Program which enables locals to have their say.  The two programs directly receiving benefits are Urban Seed and Open Family Australia.  

Paul said: “We are delighted with how much our customers have embraced the program.  The concept of giving is fundamental in all communities, and South Wharf is no exception.  Our cause partners play a vital role in supporting those in need who live in our neighbourhood.”

He went on to say: “Donations allow Urban Seed to run Credo Café, which provides food to disadvantaged people, and Open Family Australia to employ an outreach worker in the Docklands area.  Keeping it local is what our customers want.”

Paul’s Local Giving Program also partners with Jamie Oliver’s Ministry of Food Australia, educating the community about healthy eating. The Good Foundation has just announced this project with funds being raised via the Token Box Program.

The Good Guys Local Giving Program is run in partnership with The Good Guys Foundation, a not-for-profit organisation which will see a percentage of every transaction donated to charity.

You can find The Good Guys on Level 2 of the Homemaker Hub at DFO South Wharf.  Drop in and say hi to Paul or his friendly staff, check out the extensive range of big brands at low prices.
