On July 18th, Manitou Australia organised a special event to celebrate and show its support to the MANITOU Elevation Week.
The concept was simple: get as many clothing items as possible and fill a Manitou bucket! In only a couple of hours… the challenge was already completed!
200 KG of clothing items: jeans, tee-shirts, coats and shoes were collected from MAU Staff and even from Dial A Dump Industries (DADI) which is one of the leading waste management service providers in New South Wales based in the neighborhood.
The 200 KG of clothing were then distributed to the local St Vincent De Paul Charity Association in Sydney, Australian association with more than 40,000 members and volunteers, who work hard to assist people in need and combat social injustice across Australia. (more information here).
Liftrite Hire & Sales, an Australian Manitou Dealer, also managed to organise their very own Manitou FILL A BUCKET day at their local head office in Perth, Western Australia. Their initiative was very successful and they managed to fill a whole bucket with clothing items!
We would like to thank Liftrite for taking the time to participate, Dial A Dump Industries for supporting the initiative and bringing more than 20kg of bags! And also, the complete staff at MAU for making it happen. Thank you!
