Pickles is committed to supporting our local communities and actively caring for our neighbours.
We are involved in a wide range of national and local community activities including corporate sponsorships and donations, skills sharing/volunteering and workplace giving.
The following is a brief overview of our national commitment to supporting the community in a practical way and making a difference:

Pickles Workplace Giving was launched in October 2011 and provides employees with the opportunity to make a difference to our community by donating to charities through pre-tax payroll contributions. Pickles match staff donations (up to $50,000 per annum). Based on the results of an employee survey, we identified three community causes that were of most interest and chose to support these. We donate to Camp Quality, Salvation Army and Variety.
Since its launch, Pickles and employees have together donated more than $257,000 to our charity partners. We have also helped our charity partners through events such as volunteering at the Bulldogs Camp Quality Round Game and fundraising nationally at all auctions for The Salvation Army’s Red Shield Appeal.
