Leading global manufacturer of padlocks and related security and safety products, Master Lock has collaborated with not-for-profit, Good360 Australia, to provide peace of mind and protection to vulnerable individuals and communities through a charitable donation, assisting 1,000 individuals with a selection of quality security solutions.

In celebration of its 100-year milestone, Master Lock reached out to Good360, which connects surplus brand-new goods donated by businesses to people in need Australia-wide, after learning of its mission and wanting to connect its donation to the right cause.

Good360 was able to match Master Lock’s sizeable donation of Combination World Dial Padlocks, Braided Steel Bike Cable Locks and Pro Series High Security Padlocks to two charities, Drought Angels and MIDLAS, and a disadvantaged school, The Lomandra School in Sydney’s south-west.

Drought Angels assists thousands of farmers across Australia and supports their communities to feel connected, respected and remembered during drought and other natural disasters. Master Locks’ donation of 250 bike locks will help support farmers in need.

MIDLAS has been operating for more than 30 years, providing family law, financial counselling, tenancy and disability advocacy and emergency relief services to the most vulnerable community members of the City of Swan, WA. They received 250 high security padlocks from Master Lock which will assist in promoting independence and wellbeing in individuals. 

The Lomandra School is a school in Sydney’s south-west which works together with the Lomandra Community Project acting as a ‘hub’ or initial point of contact for donations, before distributing them to disadvantaged members of the community.

Master Lock product manager, Steven Swinfield said, “We are proud to have supported the excellent work that Good360 does in matching surplus goods to charities in need and thrilled that our products have been placed with such relevant charities that will really benefit directly from their use.”

“The work that each organisation is doing is so important in helping to improve the lives of vulnerable Australians and we are honoured to have been able to support them as part of our 100-year celebrations.”

Good360 founder and managing director, Alison Covington said, “We are proud to partner with Master Lock who are a trusted and well-known brand. Their donation of brand-new locks is an essential item in high demand by our member charities and disadvantaged schools. Every person has the right to protect their most valuable possessions.”
