Keno extends partnership with Disaster Relief Australia for another two years
23 March 2022
Keno announced it will extend its partnership with Disaster Relief Australia, committing $400,000 over the next two years to help more communities recover from natural disasters.
DRA unites the skills of Australian Defence Force veterans, first responders and volunteers to deploy emergency response teams where they’re needed most, such as the NSW and Queensland communities hit hard by the recent floods.
The partnership is a natural fit for the two organisations, with clubs and pubs where Keno is played the heart of many Australian communities and often acting as DRA operation headquarters where recovery efforts are organised and run.
“(DRA) is the organisation and the people who are there for us when nobody else can be,” Keno General Manager Terry Fowler said.
“Sadly, natural disasters are a common occurrence in Australia and recovery efforts require money and volunteers to assist communities in their rebuild.
“We want to contribute to DRA becoming the biggest recovery organisation in Australia and help support multiple recovery efforts.”
