Manitou Australia (MAU) has donated 200 kg of clothing to St Vincent de Paul Charity Association after a unique fundraiser. As part of its recent Manitou Group Elevation Week, the company set out to collect as many clothing items as possible and fill a Manitou bucket in one day. The drive succeeded in filling the bucket in a couple of hours, with 200 kg of jeans, tee-shirts, coats and shoes collected from MAU staff. Liftrite Hire & Sales, an Australian Manitou dealer, also managed to organise its own Manitou Fill a Bucket day at its head office in Perth, Western Australia. That also succeeded in filling a whole bucket. St Vincent de Paul has more than 40,000 members and volunteers, who work hard to assist people in need and combat social injustice across Australia.
