KitKat has given more than 250,000 ‘thank you’ labelled KitKat bars to thousands of healthcare workers as they work tirelessly to deliver essential care.
Nestlé Confectionery General Manager, Chris O’Donnell said that the donation was a gesture of gratitude to the men and women making incredible contributions and personal sacrifices during this critical time.
“Our KitKat brand has long called for people to ‘have a break’ – but we know that for many, that’s not possible during this time. To all those working in our healthcare system, the world is forever grateful to you for not having a break right now.
“We have been moved by the commitment and hard work of our frontline healthcare workers during such challenging conditions. The strength and resilience they continue to show is humbling. We wanted to, even in a small way, say thank you and to show our support and appreciation.”
The donation to hospital staff follows Nestlé’s support of $2 million in food products to Foodbank Australia to support vulnerable members of the community, as well as essential food items to a number of at-risk remote Indigenous communities facing food scarcity.
