Good360 Australia founder and Managing Director Alison Covington AM says the charity is excited to welcome these talented and experienced new directors to the board:

“The Good360 board is made up of passionate people who are leaders in their industries. They play a critical role in helping us strive towards our goal of distributing $1 billion of essential goods to Australians in need by 2025,” she says.

“Recognising that ‘the essentials’ are much more than just food, we provide goods such as furniture, clothes, household appliances, sports equipment, toys and personal hygiene products to people in need. Since 2015 we’ve provided almost 40 million brand new items to four million people.

“Lauren and David bring a wealth of retail, technology and marketing experience that will help Good360 grow and enhance our work reducing both need and waste in our communities. We’re thrilled to have them join our ‘circle of good’ and are excited about the impact they will have.”
