Along with a $250,000 donation, the company is looking to send a team of staff members to volunteer in one of the many BlazeAid camps.

CNH Industrial managing director for Ag Brandon Stannett says he is pleased that CNH can help the farming community.

"[We’re] proud to support our community of farmers and their families as they face the challenges of rebuilding after these devastating fires," he says.

"Our team is pleased to be able to help in a simple and practical, yet very important way, as a company, we work in partnership with local communities and farmers across Australia every day and we are committed to ensuring that we can support them through times that can test even the strongest in our community," Stannett adds.

"Obviously, Australia – and the world – is now facing this new challenge that is COVID-19 but we want to show these bushfire-affected communities that their rebuilding efforts are still very much front-of-mind for the company, and our staff." 

BlazeAid’s co-founder Kevin Butler welcomed the support.

"The recovery efforts will be long-term, and we are only able to continue to help communities through the ongoing support of our volunteers and partners," Butler says. "This assistance from CNH Industrial will help make a real difference in areas where so much has been lost," he adds.

BlazeAid was founded by Kevin and Rhonda Butler over a decade ago and has provided assistance to those affected by major natural disasters such as the 2011 floods, Cyclone Yasi and the 2014 bushfires, just to name a few.

While most camps are close due to the Coronavirus pandemic, BlazeAid and its volunteers are still working at certain camps and adhering to the latest social distancing measures.
