DPD provides 1000 new laptops for staff with children home-schooling
DPD provided 1000 new Chromebook laptops for members of staff who had children studying at home.
Dwain McDonald, DPD’s CEO at the time commented, “The last 12 months have been unprecedented with national lockdowns, restrictions on daily life and now schools closed as we all fight to get on top of this pandemic. Our team has done an incredible job throughout, but the challenges keep on coming, both at work and at home. Home-schooling has created a number of issues for families and we wanted to do our bit to try and help.
“Our work supporting charities is more important than ever in the current environment and the Community Fund is continuing to provide valuable support for initiatives right across the country. However, we knew from talking to staff that home-schooling was a big challenge for lots of families, closer to home. And we knew it was something that we could make a difference with, in a practical way.”
