To celebrate reaching our millionth customer, in July we donated $100,000 on behalf of our customers to The Salvation Army to help give hope to people doing it tough this winter.
People like Jodie… Jodie’s life began to unravel when she had to become a full-time carer for her husband after he was badly injured in a car accident. With Jodie and her husband unable to earn an income to pay their mounting bills, they and their severely autistic young son soon faced the threat of homelessness.
As Jodie says: “There are so many days I do not have a single cent to my name. There’s a lot of saying ‘no’ to your children because of what you cannot give them. It’s heartbreaking”.
Families like Jodie’s need urgent help with power bills, fresh food and groceries, and financial counselling, which they receive through the Salvation Army.
So to all our customers, thank you for choosing Alinta Energy – and for helping to make this $100,000 donation possible.
