Community


At Zorich Group, we are committed to giving back to our community however we can. Not only do we sponsor many local sporting clubs, we also offer in store customers the option to purchase a $1 reusable Zorich Group bag, with proceeds going straight to the current, select charity. These organizations range from assisting those less fortunate to those requiring much needed funds for research. This initiative began in 2012 and Zorich Group has since managed to raise over $85 000 for those in need, all thanks to their customers and staff.

Below highlights the organizations we have proudly supported over the years and we look forward to adding many more to this list.
