Myer Indooroopilly is set to raise significant funds this month to help the effort to end women’s homelessness in Brisbane.

The Lady Musgrave Trust has been selected by the Myer Community Fund to receive donations in kind, through Myer Indooroopilly’s Local Giving Month POS Round Up Campaign.

Customers shopping in-store at Myer Indooroopilly will have the opportunity to round up their purchase to the nearest dollar, with 100% of the proceeds going directly to the organisation.

The Queensland charity – dedicated to sheltering vulnerable women and their children – is grateful to Myer for their support.

“Myer strongly believes in supporting the community and we have been fortunate to build a strong partnership with Myer Indooroopilly for several years now”, says Karen Lyon Reid, Chief Executive Officer of The Lady Musgrave Trust.

“Their innovative “Round Up Campaign” will help The Lady Musgrave Trust to provide assistance to homeless women and their children who are often affected by domestic violence.”

The Trust provides women and their children with accommodation in safe and furnished units throughout Brisbane and Ipswich. Currently the Trust provides about 8000 bed-nights of safe accommodation each year.

Shop in-store at Myer Indooroopilly and round up your purchase to the nearest dollar. All funds raised for the month of February will support The Lady Musgrave Trust.
