  • NAB collecting donations for South Australia bushfire recovery work by Red Cross
  • Launches $150,000 fund for community rebuilding

National Australia Bank (NAB) today started collecting donations for Red Cross to support its work with communities impacted by last week’s Pinery bushfires in South Australia, and further afield.

Donations can be made over-the-counter at any NAB branch in South Australia, or by logging on to internet banking at nab.com.au. Select Funds Transfer » Donation » Charity » Red Cross for SA bushfire.

In addition, NAB has also created a Community Recovery Fund, making up to $150,000 available to help recovery efforts in the affected communities in South Australia.

Community organisations that have lost infrastructure and/or assets in the fires, or directly serve the needs of the affected communities, can apply for grants of up to $10,000 from the Fund to help rebuilding efforts.

Gregg Harris, General Manager, NAB Retail, South Australia and Northern Territory said: “We are turning our attention to the challenging task of recovering and rebuilding in the coming weeks and months.”

“Impacted customers can also access our disaster relief package, so whether it is a home owner that needs a break from their mortgage repayments, or a sporting club repairing damaged facilities, we are here to help.”

Community organisations can visit a NAB branch or talk to a NAB banker for more information on how to apply for a grant from the Community Recovery Fund.
