Written on the 12 June 2014 by Karen Rickert

COLLINS FOODS GIVE BACK $2.4M TO CHARITY COLLINS Foods Limited (ASX:CKF) has raised more than $2.4 million over five years for charity, through its workplace giving program.

The fast food franchisor collects donations from staff, management and customers, matching the amount of money raised up to $100,000 a year.

CEO Kevin Perkins (pictured) says he is proud of people’s generosity and hopes it boosts team morale in the workplace.

“Providing our people with a platform to make a difference through workplace giving really enhances organisational performance – fostering teamwork, improving our culture and bringing our values to life.

“It’s inspiring, that even in a challenging business environment, people want to help others,” he says.

The company is celebrating the achievement this month, highlighting the difference made to the community.

The money is shared between five beneficiaries including Youngcare, Animal Welfare League of Queensland, Good Beginnings Australia, Children’s Hospital Foundations Australia and Breast Cancer Network Australia.

Perkins says more than 3500 employees give regularly through their pay, representing 53 per cent of the company’s workforce.

“We encourage other Australian businesses to get on board with workplace giving to build employee engagement and help charities achieve change in the community.”

CFK owns 167 KFC stores in Queensland, Western Australia, New South Wales and the Northern Territory, as well as 26 Sizzler restaurants nationally.
