Wellington City Mission

Making a difference to the community we live in is very much at the heart of Datacom’s corporate social responsibility programme

Each year Datacom supports the Wellington City Mission, including supporting the Walk of Fame - the Mission’s Christmas Star Appeal.

Datacom Wellington is a Star supporter and through this sponsorship aims to bring hope, joy, courage and confidence to those who are struggling and less fortunate than ourselves.

All money raised through the Star appeal assists those who need help, regardless of their religious belief, age, ethnicity, or social background.

Datacom also supports the Mission in many other ways, including the Mission’s Foodbank, an emergency service that operates throughout the year assisting people who are struggling with food for themselves and their families.

In September, the Wellington Sales team turned back the clock for “Throwback Tie Tuesday”, each finding and wearing their oldest tie to work for a food item donation.

The Christmas Appeal is also a popular initiative, supported by Datacom employees who bring in non-perishable food items, and donate Christmas gifts.

These items are collected by the Mission and distributed to local families in desperate need at Christmas.
