The generosity of the Illawarra business community through the COVID-19 pandemic continued on Easter Sunday when FinoComp decided to sponsor 120 meals for frontline health workers.
FinoComp paid for the meals as part of Centro CBD's 'adopt a health care worker' initiative during the coronavirus crisis.
The software development company founded in 2015 employs close to 40 people in Jamberoo and Wollongong.
The team wanted to ensure medical staff working tirelessly to help others at Wollongong and Shellharbour hospitals could enjoy an Easter Sunday lunch and dinner.
"30 meals will be delivered to each hospital for lunch and dinner," FincoComp HR manager Leanne Isabella said.
Managing director Ray Tubman said it was great to be able to do something to help some people doing so much to help others.
"We are really fortunate to be in an industry that is able to isolate and continue to do our jobs in a safe environment," Mr Tubman said.
'And we appreciate those who have to be on the front line during this pandemic and indeed at all other times.
"The medical profession deserve all the support that business can do to assist them in this difficult time.
"We are fortunate to also now be apart of a larger business that believes in having a social conscience and encourages our staff to give back to the community.
"The supply of lunch and dinner to these heroes is a small token of thanks from us. We hope to assist more going forward".
FinoComp builds highly flexible software to support the UK wealth market.
The software is used for data analytics, client reporting, performance reporting and regulatory compliance built on a microservices architecture.

In December Mr Tubman revealed FinoComp was being acquired by and would form part of the $1 billion Bravura Solutions organisation.that employs 1500 people globally.
He said being a part of Bravura would allow FinoComp to continue to grow in the Illawarra from where it will deliver more world-class solutions for its clients.
The software developed in Jamberoo and Wollongong will also add functionality to Bravura and bring with it new wealth management clients.
FinoComp has enjoyed strong year on year revenue growth during the last five years.

In October it opened an additional office in Smith Street, Wollongong and was named Employer of Choice at the Illawarra Business Awards.
In late 2019 it also made the list of Deloitte's Technology Fast 50 companies in Australia.
