Datacord's Make A Difference Program
Datacord, with the help of our clients are funding Pasta donations to Foodbank South Australia along with a weekend away in respite accomodataion at 'Bradley's Place' through Childhood Cancer Association. Our Make A Difference Program launched in July 2020 and our donations in such a short period have risen to the equivalent of 26.89 Tonnes of Pasta to Foodbank South Australia and 135 family weekends away in respite accomodation through Childhood Cancer Association.
Food Charities, which exist to meet a community need, are experiencing an alarming increase in demand. In the last 12 months Foodbank has experienced an increase in community groups seeking food assistance. Charities report having to turn away 6,000 people a month on average – 4 in each 10 of whom are children. We plan to continue our pasta donations and encourage like minded businesses to join together and help tackle this issue.
In 2020 Childhood Cancer Association are currently supporting 400+ families with no government funding and rely soley on the local community and local businesses for support. In 2020 61 children newley diagnosed with cancer were referred to the Childhood Cancer Association, 8 Children relapsed and 14 children sadley lose their battle with cancer who were in linked with Childhood Cancer Association.
