The Do-Op Shop, a non-religious charity focused on community empowerment, have generously decided to give up a day’s worth of profits to help Jon and Amelia Grieve’s family rebuild their lives following a devastating fire that razed their Cannon Hill home.
Jon and Amelia Grieve, along with their two daughters Harper and Mabel, lost their Cannon Hill home in a fire that originated from a faulty charging cord in the kitchen.
Since the unfortunate incident, the Grieve family has received an outpouring of love and support from their community.
Recognising the need to help the family, the owners of Do-Op Shop, Nina and Zoe, located at Morningside Central on Junction Road, have pledged to donate all profits from sales made in-store and online on the 8th of July to the Grieve family.
“Amelia has been a huge supporter & ambassador for Do-Op since the very beginning, and those lucky enough to know Amelia know of her selflessness and love for her community. Now is the time to show our love for her, John, Harper & Maple,” the owners stated.
The Do-Op Shop is known for its commitment to giving back to local initiatives. As a non-religious charity, it operates with the goal of fighting social isolation and creating a welcoming space where everyone feels valued and empowered. The shop goes beyond being a mere retail space, as it aims to foster meaningful connections among people from all walks of life.
The event will run from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., and the Do-Op Shop will provide regular updates throughout the day on the amount of funds raised to support the Grieve family’s rebuilding efforts.
For those unable to attend in person, donations can be made directly through the Grieve family’s GoFundMe page opened by Shyree Painter, a neighbour.
By participating in this event, community members have an opportunity to contribute to a worthy cause whilst enjoying the excitement of op shopping. The Do-Op Shop’s initiative to help the Grieve family exemplifies their commitment to their community and their mission.
With their collaborative and authentic environment, the Do-Op Shop continues to inspire community connection and empower individuals to make a difference.
