Helping hand for Auckland and Wellington City Missions

Datacom has had a close relationship with the Auckland and Wellington City Mission organisations for many years.

We provide food and financial donations, while our staff volunteer their time to support the organisation. Our annual Christmas drive includes donating toys for the children. In July, a group of 19 volunteers headed to the Auckland Grafton City Mission distribution centre to help prepare for the mission’s mid-winter Christmas party.

While the dedicated team worked very hard packing and sorting through items such as food and clothing, they intend to go back for another session in 2014. Another group of volunteers went to the Wellington City Mission to help sort out food following the “brown bag” appeal.

“In a relationship spanning over 12 years Datacom and their staff have supported the Auckland City Mission in many different ways. During that time $12,000, numerous gifts of food and hundreds Christmas presents have helped the mission support Aucklanders in desperate need. The recent inclusion of the mission in Datacom’s volunteer programme has helped strengthen a fantastic existing relationship between two very close neighbours. Datacom continues to make a real and tangible difference to the mission’s work and we are truly grateful for their support.”
