Greenacres lastest worker was welcomed to the fold at the launch of the organisation's 2019 M2M Challenge on Friday.
Weighing in at 11 tonnes, and measuring 11.5 metres, this new addition is set to take on a considerable workload.
Greenacres CEO Chris Christodoulou said the new truck had already started its working life, but was the perfect guest of honour at the launch.
"We really wanted to show the more than 1000 competitors who took part in last year’s challenge, and the people who sponsored them, the impact they have made on our organisation,” he said.
“There are 240 people with a disability employed at Greenacres whose jobs depend on a reliable truck to bring the work from Sydney and deliver the finished product back again.”
At close to 20 years old - and with almost 700,000 kilometres on the clock - the old truck desperately needed replacing. However the not-for-profit organisation struggled to cover the $160,000 price tag of a new truck.
“Because of the 2018 M2M Challenge and the generous support of our community we raised over $70,000 to help buy our new truck,” Mr Christodoulou said.
He hopes the community will support Greenacres for the fifth M2M Challenge, from Mt Keira to Mt Kembla, on July 28. Register at www.m2mchallenge.com.au
