Maryborough’s Guardian Pharmacy has teamed up with St Vincent de Paul Society to trial a new donation system in-store, designed to give back to locals.
The pharmacy is one of 10 across the state to trial the introduction of a tap-and-go, or tap-and-give donation payment method for six months, where Guardian customers can tap their bank card for a one-off $3 donation to support Vinnies.
The new initiative comes just months after the local pharmacy recently completed the Knitting For Good initiative with Vinnies, which saw knitted garments created locally and donated to those in the community who needed it most.
Maryborough Guardian Pharmacy retail manager Caroline McCreery welcomed the opportunity to give back locally.
“When we opened the email that said we’d been selected we thought it was really great to be part of a trial where we’re giving back to the community like this,” she said.
