ANZ today announced its assistance package already in place for Northern Queensland customers will be extended to those impacted by severe weather in South East Queensland and Northern New South Wales as well as $100,000 donation to support relief efforts.
The donation will be split between the Red Cross and the Foundation for Rural & Regional Renewal, with each charity receiving $50,000. ANZ will also match staff donations to the Red Cross up to $50,000.
ANZ Managing Director Retail Distribution Catriona Noble said: “The record flooding in Queensland and New South Wales is continuing to have a devastating impact. We hope our donation will help people get back on their feet in some small way.”
ANZ is waiving ATM fees in impacted areas for all non-ANZ customers from tomorrow until Monday 3 April. For ANZ customers using other ATMs, fees will be refunded from Tuesday 28 March until Monday 3 April.
