THE Good Guys Bundaberg has put action to their name by providing valuable support to some of those in the community who need it most.

During Doing Good Week, The Good Guys annual week of giving, the Bundaberg team provided support in the form of much needed appliances to Bundaberg and District Ex Servicewomen's Association, Discovery Coast Meals on Wheels, local family Glen and Anna Horwell, and T.S. Bundaberg Navy Cadets.

Living remotely, it has been a struggle storing food for all seven family members.

Doing Good Week, which takes place between Monday, September 5 and Sunday, September 11 sees hundreds of acts being undertaken by The Good Guys all over Australia and aims to bring stores and their local communities together to support the organisations and individuals who need it most.

"It is so important to make a difference in a tangible way, and all acts of kindness embarked upon during Doing Good Week are very personal to those involved," The Good Guys Bundaberg Store Executive Manager Roy Howard said.

"We are passionate about making a difference in our local community and having a positive impact on important social issues."

In total The Good Guys will undertake over 500 acts of Doing Good this year, donating more than $350,000 worth of appliances.

Doing Good Week is part of The Good Guys Doing Good program, which sees more than $1 million donated back to over 100 local charities through the Local Giving Program and more than $600,000 through in-kind giving each year to more than 1,000 local community groups and families.

"By completing as many acts as possible we can ensure that we give back to every community in which we operate, something that The Good Guys is committed to doing for a long time into the future," he said.
