Umwelt’s NSW Team Gives Back

Umwelt’s NSW team recently came together to celebrate 2015 and wanted to give back to the local community. Given recent experiences of current and past Umwelt employees, the NSW team chose to help out the Newcastle Ronald McDonald House. The Newcastle Ronald McDonald House is a long standing facility that provides a valuable service to sick children and their families during difficult times. The Newcastle Ronald McDonald House hosts up to 15 families over the Christmas period. To help bring some Christmas cheer, the staff of Ronald McDonald House provide gifts to all children staying at the house as well as hampers to families on Christmas Day.

The Umwelt NSW team ran a toy drive with staff kindly donating a variety of gifts for babies to teenagers and everything in between. Umwelt also donated a number of grocery and cosmetic items to be included in hampers to be provided to families on Christmas Day. It was our pleasure to present the goods to Leonie Borrow from the Newcastle Ronald McDonald House when she visited the NSW Umwelt offices on 11 December. We hope that our small contribution makes a difference to those special families staying at Ronald McDonald House during the festive period, especially on Christmas Day.
