Roger Drake values the importance of giving back to the community.

He firmly believes that it is the local community that contributes to the success of his business every day.

Let us share with you how Drakes gets involved in the local community and how you and your local group can get involved.

Drakes Charity Showbag

In conjunction with our valued suppliers and the Phoenix Society, each year Drakes Supermarkets release the Drakes Charity Showbag for sale in our South Australian stores throughout the week of the Royal Adelaide Show.

It is with the kind donations from our suppliers that make this initiative a success. In 2014, 540,000 products were donated with a total retail value of just over $40. The bags were sold for just $5.99 and 21,000 showbags were sold during the week. Drakes were able to raise $86,620.92 in funds for our four nominated charities – Phoenix Society, Royal District Nursing Service, Queen Elizabeth Hospital Research Foundation and Flinders Medical Centre Breast Cancer Research.

We wish to take this opportunity to thank our valued customers and suppliers for their support and contribution to this rewarding initiative.

Community Dollars

There’s nothing more rewarding than seeing the difference we can make in the community we live. The community dollars program was established as a way for Drakes to regularly give back to the local groups which operate in our community.

How it works is that your organisation will receive the nominated amount of Community Dollars Key tags for distribution to your members. For every $2 spent at a participating Drakes store in SA and $1 spent at a participating Drakes store in QLD, 1c will be accredited to your organisations fund.

After a successful launch in Queensland in 2012 and then in South Australia in 2013, the Community Dollars Program has paid in excess of $160,000 to local community groups across Queensland and South Australia.

Getting your local church, footy club, kindergarten or chosen charity involved is easy. Simply complete the application form and your group will be experiencing the benefits of this prestigious program.
