Workplace Giving DID YOU KNOW THAT DONATING JUST A FEW DOLLARS FROM YOUR PAY EACH WEEK ENSURES THAT NO ONE WILL EVER PAY TO BE ASSISTED BY THE WESTPAC RESCUE HELICOPTER SERVICE? WORKPLACE GIVING PROGRAMS HAVE BEEN AN IMPORTANT AND VALUED WAY THAT OUR COMMUNITY CONTRIBUTES. WELL KNOWN AND CHAMPIONED BY OUR MATES IN MINING AND UNIONS, PAYROLL CONTRIBUTIONS OF JUST A COUPLE OF DOLLARS EACH WEEK ARE MADE BY PEOPLE WORKING IN LOCAL COUNCILS, HEALTH, MEDIA, MANUFACTURING, BUSINESS SERVICES AND SMALL BUSINESS, TO NAME JUST A FEW.

Following the conversation, the driver mentioned to Hills Tankers’ management the costs involved to keep the Service operational. A decision was made to give employees the option to donate weekly. Based at Beresfield, Hills Tankers is a family owned carrier business specialising in bulk liquids and operating throughout the eastern states of Australia. It provides transport services and specialised logistics solutions to the dangerous goods and bulk liquids industry. Hills Tankers also recently participated in Viva Energy’s 90-day charity challenge. Hills’ chose the Rescue Helicopter. If the company has 90 days without incident, Viva will match the contribution.

An employee signs up to the program by completing a simple form and nominating the regular payroll deduction amount. 3.
