Toll Group today announced a A$100,000 donation to the Australian Red Cross to support communities impacted by the floods in New South Wales and Queensland. In addition to this payment, Toll Group will provide financial support to employees impacted by the floods.
Toll Group Managing Director Thomas Knudsen said the company had an important role to play in supporting the community and employees impacted by the floods.
“I know I speak for the Toll teams around the world when I say that the recent flood scenes from eastern Australia have shocked and saddened us all,” said Mr Knudsen.
“Toll has a long and proud Australian heritage which represents our biggest operations. The leadership team and I feel strongly that Toll has a responsibility to step up to support the community and our people.”
Toll is offering financial support to employees impacted by the floods, including paid leave to support with recovery, and assistance of up to $2,500 to impacted employees.
Toll team members are working hard alongside our customers to support flood impacted communities, keeping vital supplies moving and supporting the recovery.
The Toll Rescue Helicopter Service is playing a vital role in supporting communities impacted by the devasting floods, and have expanded support servicers with the deployment of the AICH AW139 from Townsville and the Army Crash Response Helicopter from Oakey.
“It’s events like these when I am especially proud of Toll Group’s Toll Helicopter team who have been involved in heartening and inspiring rescues during the recent floods,” said Mr Knudsen.
