BOQ Geraldton has added another dimension to its longstanding relationship with Midwest Charity Begins At Home Inc. by establishing a referral arrangement that will drive regular donations to the local charity. The branch has sponsored the charity’s annual gala event for the last five years but wanted to extend its support all year round. Under the new arrangement, BOQ will make a donation for every loan referral over $200,000 which comes from Midwest Charity Begins At Home.
BOQ Geraldton Owner-Manager Jenny Addison said the cause was something that is close to her heart.
"I've been a part of the Geraldton community for 20 years and plan on being here for the next 20 so giving back to those in our local community is something I strive towards," Ms Addison said
"What the Midwest Charity Begins at Home does is fantastic and this extended partnership is a great way for us to give back throughout the year," she said.
