Good to Give

DW Fox Tucker Firm and Employee Giving Program

The DW Fox Tucker Charity Committee has recently undergone a revamp, and we are up and running with a raft of new faces who bring with them lots of enthusiasm and new ideas. We are proud to play an active role in giving back to the local community. Whether it be through monetary support or voluntary commitment, we are determined to do our bit to help build a better community.

The Committee consists of 12 staff members from a broad range of cultural backgrounds and age groups. Our new mix provides the perfect balance for determining the types of charities and causes that will gain the greatest benefit from our support.

The new program launched in August and it was a huge month! We proudly got behind the Hutt St Centre, RSPCA and R U OK? day and we welcomed a new partnership with Foodbank Australia. We couldn’t be prouder of our staff for embracing all the various causes and initiatives.

Foodbank

We are proud to announce our new partnership with Foodbank Australia, a not-for-profit organisation operating in every state and territory in Australia.

Foodbank is Australia’s largest food relief organisation, operating on a scale that makes it crucial to the work of the front line charities that are feeding vulnerable Australians. Foodbank provides 77 million meals a year (210,000 meals a day) to more than 2,600 charities around the country, accounting for 79% of all food received by charities from food rescue organisations.

Our new partnership with Foodbank is a year-round commitment by the firm and staff to donate funds and much-needed food items to those in need.

Hutt Street “Walk a Mile in My Boots”

On 9 August 2019 a group of staff gathered bright and early to participate in the Hutt Street ‘Walk a Mile in my Boots’. The group, led by our Managing Director Joseph De Ruvo, walked from Victoria Park/Pakapakanthi to South Park Lands/ita Wirra Park to show support for the 6,000 homeless people within our community. We would like to congratulate everyone that was involved in the planning, fundraising and running of this terrific event.

RSPCA

On 19 August 2019 we celebrated RSPCA ‘Cupcake Day’ by selling baked goods donated by our employees. The sale was an enormous success, and our staff enjoyed showing off their culinary skills for bragging rights. In addition to the bake sale, the RSPCA was our ‘charity of the month’ and received all of the cash donations generated from our weekly casual day charity collection.

R U OK?

In September the Committee chose to embrace the topic of mental health. On Tuesday, 12 September 2019 the firm held a morning tea fundraiser to recognise R U OK? day and staff were encouraged to wear something yellow to embrace the cause. R U OK? day is a great initiative that reminds us that having meaningful conversations with our family and friends could save a life. In addition to the morning tea, R U OK? was selected as our ‘charity of the month’ and received all of the cash donations generated from our weekly casual day charity collection.
