PACCAR Australia is proud to have helped bring together a group of supporters to assist those who are seriously affected by the drought.
We are grateful to the Dealers and Suppliers in our extended Kenworth Family network who responded to our recent call for donations to the cause through the collaboration between Rotary Australia and the National Farmers Federation Appeal.
To Assemco, Brown and Watson International, Gilbert & Roach Kenworth DAF Huntingwood, Gilbert & Roach Kenworth DAF Newcastle, Heavy Automatics, Hilton Manufacturing, Rae-Line, Suttons Kenworth DAF Arncliffe and Zinc we extend our sincerest thanks for your direct contributions to the combined fundraising effort.
We would also like to recognise the efforts of our PACCAR employees who enthusiastically participated in a variety of fundraising activities to add to the total donation.
The extended Kenworth Family formally contributed $116,000 within the Appeal, but there were many more Dealers and Suppliers who were involved outside of the program via their own direct activities. Through their efforts they more than doubled this amount
While some rainfall in drought-affected areas has been welcomed, the persistent and on-going lack of significant rain continues across New South Wales and Queensland.
The drought is far from over and PACCAR Australia will continue its efforts to assist those in affected areas and encourage others to continue their on-going support for our rural communities in this time of need.
