An ongoing global pandemic
The global COVID-19 pandemic has lurched people into a state of ongoing uncertainty creating a new vulnerable community. People who would not normally ask for assistance are now jobless, struggling to support themselves and their families.
Australia has endured two years of COVID stress and there is no immediate end in sight. At the peak of demand in 2021 Good360 were matching 39 brand new items a minute to people in need Australia wide. We know more than ever our members and your communities are facing challenging times and we stand with you. As such, we will continue to work with our member charities, eligible schools and generous product donors to get the right goods to the right people when they are needed the most.
Good360 is a matchmaker, connecting brand-new goods donated by businesses to people and communities who need them the most.

Short-term response (phase two) : Response
In March 2020, not long after the bushfires had finished burning, we soon learnt that there would be a whole new wave of demand. We would be asked to meet the needs of Australians who had never asked for help before, Australians who would be faced with financial insecurity due to a global pandemic, the same Australians who had generously supported bushfire survivors now needed help themselves. We needed to help them with everyday essentials. They were being asked to school their children from home, they were underemployed, unemployed, and some were ineligible for financial support including international students.
COVID-19 saw Good360 increase the number of orders we sent by 164%, with the number of charities supported increasing by 68%. We had to develop new relationships with donors, as need in the community changed, focusing on the distribution of PPE items like face masks and hand sanitiser.
The pandemic also saw us assist whole new cohorts of people. We supplied Empower Packs to our frontline workers who were worked to the bone. And when the crew of the Ruby Princess cruise ship found themselves quarantined on board their vessel, Good360 partnered with Mission to Seafarers Port Kembla to provide care packages.
By October 2020, Good360 had matched almost $50 million worth of brand new items donated by our generous business partners, to Australian’s affected by COVID-19, via our incredible member charities and schools.
