Distributor, Dicker Data, has donated $100,000 to the Sutherland Shire Mayor’s Kurnell Disaster Appeal.
The distributor said the donation would go towards assisting the families and businesses impacted by the extreme weather experienced in the Kurnell area in December 2015.
Dicker Data chairman and chief executive, David Dicker, said the donation was a small way the company could give back to the community.
“We hope that this donation goes a long way in helping the families and businesses in the area restore normality. We’re also very thankful that all of our staff and our facility survived the event with no impact,” the ARN Hall of Fame inductee added.
Sutherland Shire Mayor, Councillor Carmelo Pesce, said the tornado that descended on
Kurnell on December 16 devastated parts of the Kurnell community, and significantly affected many residents and businesses.
“The disaster has left the Kurnell community with significant challenges, and they will need a lot of support to help them through this difficult time. We are especially grateful to Dicker Data for their kind donation,” he said.
The Sutherland Shire Mayor’s Kurnell Disaster Appeal received Dicker Data’s donation on Friday, 15 January 2016.
