Glen 20 and Woolworths have partnered with Meals on Wheels to help Can Loneliness & Create Connection.
At Glen 20 and Meals on Wheels, supporting Australians – especially our most vulnerable – is core to what we do. With the onset of COVID-19, the need for disinfection became evermore apparent and highlighted those who are particularly more vulnerable in our community.
While 90% of older Australians believe social connection is important to their wellbeing, 1in3 have been interacting less since the start of the pandemic1
Over 70% of Australians feel a hygienic home would make them feel more confident to connect1
Glen 20 has been helping protect Australians from the spread of germs for over 50 years and with the proven ability to kill the COVID-19 virus, Glen 20 is suitably positioned to help can loneliness and create moments of connection for vulnerable Australians.
That is why Glen 20 and Woolworths have partnered with Meals on Wheels to donate 100,000 cans of Glen 20 (worth AUD $900,000 RRP) to vulnerable Australians with every Pine O Cleen or Glen 20 purchase in Woolworths2.
Each can will help Can Loneliness & Create Connection by helping to ensure a hygienic environment to give Meals on Wheels volunteers and clients the peace of mind to reconnect socially in their homes.
