ADP Store Fixtures today introduced our first fundraising initiative to support the Foodbank charity in Australia, pledging to donate $5 for every Sneeze Guard product sold.
The current COVID19 crisis has affected Australian families unlike any other event in our living memory. We are seeing massive disruption to the livelihoods of millions of employees, with retail and hospitality workers being among the hardest hit.
One of the most frightening impacts of this crisis is food insecurity. Things like increased financial hardship and mass hoarding of staple items by other consumers have made it very difficult for the vulnerable to get access to basic food essentials for themselves and their families. Foodbank Charity is doing outstanding work with its team of volunteers across the country, to ensure that food and other household supplies are getting to where they are most needed.
ADP Fundraising Initiative
Due to COVID19, ADP Store Fixtures‘ new Sneeze Guard product has become an essential item for retailers, protecting their valued front-line staff members. For every Sneeze Guard product sold, ADP Store Fixtures will donate $5 directly to Foodbank Charity.
We are all in this together!
About ADP Sneeze Guards
ADP Store Fixtures‘ Sneeze Guard product provides essential front-line protection for your retail staff members. Our standard design is manufactured from premium 4.5mm clear acrylic. The single-piece design provides maximum durability, as there are no weak glued joins.
The ADP Sneeze Guard is a free-standing solution, with no additional mounting hardware required. It can be mounted to all types of retail counters and checkouts and is provided with the option of a semi-permanent screw fitting kit or a velcro fitting kit which allows fast installation and removal if required. There are pre-drilled holes in the unit to assist with installation when using the screw fitting kit.
The access slot at the bottom of the Sneeze Guard allows for easy access to your payment machine and any paperwork required for the customer and is large enough for passing items such as medicine boxes, convenience items, and more.
Size: 700W x 750H x 200D (mm)
Access Slot: 350Lx200H (mm)
Material: 4.5mm Clear Acrylic
Foodbank is Australia’s largest food relief organisation, operating on a scale that makes it crucial to the work of the front-line charities who are feeding vulnerable Australians. Foodbank provides more than 70% of the food rescued for food relief organisations nationwide.
Last year, Foodbank sourced the equivalent of 77 million meals for over 2,600 charity partners. Without this food, millions of vulnerable Aussies would go hungry.
Foodbank’s work makes a positive difference in the lives of Australians, with recipients of food and grocery relief reporting they feel less hungry, are able to focus and concentrate, are less stressed, and more hopeful.
