VERTO chief executive, Ron Maxwell, today announced VERTO had donated $10,000 in total to the Australian Red Cross and New South Wales (NSW) Rural Fire Service.

This is in addition to the charitable donations VERTO made to the Mid North Coast Bushfire Appeal (run by the Taree Lions Club) and BlazeAid late in 2019.   

Mr. Maxwell said the entire VERTO team was saddened by the loss of life, homes, livestock and wildlife across the nation.

"As a not-for-profit, charitable organisation, VERTO understands the importance of giving back to our local communities," Mr. Maxwell said.

“Organisations like the Australian Red Cross and the NSW Rural Fire Service, (which is manned by over 72,000 volunteer firefighters), are doing a remarkable job of saving lives, protecting homes and helping locals to get back on their feet.

“We hope that our contribution will assist those in need at this devastating time,” Mr. Maxwell said.
