The infamous Australia wildfires have caused great devastation to the country’s terrain and wildlife. There’s been countless lives impacted, properties destroyed and approximately 480 million animals killed since the fires started in September 2019. The cultural wildlife icons of Australia, including kangaroos, koalas, wallabies, wombats, and native birds, have all been impacted the most. Heartbroken people and organizations all over the world have been pushed into action to help the Australian relief efforts. And that includes the employees of FreightCenter!
How FreightCenter Helped the Australian Relief Efforts
Members of the FreightCenter Team got together to donate to the Carolina Waterfowl Rescue who is running an initiative to supply Australian relief efforts with joey pouches, nests, blankets and wraps for injured and rescued wildlife. Made out of 100% cotton and 100% wool, these pouches and blankets were hand knitted by FreightCenter employees to send to the Carolina Waterfowl Rescue to be shipped to Australia.
So, now our fluffy friends in the land down under can be safe, protected and stylish!
