Myer customers have raised $110,000 to assist Townsville residents following the floods.

Customers rounded up the cost of their purchase to the nearest dollar and donated the difference to charity.

Myer has been running a national POS Round Up campaign to support those impacted by the devastating weather event.

Myer Townsville store manager Hayley Tanna said the POS campaign was a success.

“All funds raised through the POS Round Up campaign will go directly to GIVIT and assist those affected by the floods in Townsville.

Donations will provide critical support to residents impacted by the flooding as well as providing longer recovery support to re-establish homes and help communities recover.

“The generosity of our local community is extraordinary and I would also like to thank the Townsville team for getting behind the fundraising effort.

"Some of our team members have been affected by the floods, or know members of the community who have been, so this is fundraising effort is very close to their hearts.”

GIVIT has been selected as Myer’s Charity Partner. GIVIT, in partnership with the Queensland Government and Townsville City Council, are managing all offers of assistance for the Queensland Floods.
