The Lencrow Group is proudly supporting The Smith Family Toy & Book Appeal by donating the use of materials handling equipment for their Christmas Packing and Distribution Centres in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide.

The Smith Family is a national, independent children’s charity, helping disadvantaged Australian children to get the most out of their education, so they can create better futures for themselves.

According to Ross Grassick, General Manager of Lencrow, The Smith Family has been providing support to disadvantaged families over the Christmas period for over 90 years. Lencrow’s support for these appeals aims to give families and most importantly, their children the Happy Christmas that they deserve.

Lencrow will provide 5 x 2500kg forklifts and a number of hand pallet jacks. The forklifts have been donated from Lencrow’s hire fleet of over 1500 units that cover a range from hand pallet jacks to container handlers.

The Smith Family was founded 90 years ago when five businessmen concerned by the poverty that existed on their doorstep, visited an orphanage at Christmas with gifts of toys and sweets for the children. When asked who the children could thank, the men modestly answered, “Smith, we are all Smiths.” The anonymous benefactors vowed to continue their support for disadvantaged children and created the name it proudly bears today.
