Greek business in Campbelltown donates $400 worth of food vouchers to those in need

·

Big Fat Greek at Woodbine has been impacted by the strict lockdown of the Campbelltown Local Government Area (LGA) in NSW, but that didn’t stop owner, Peter Sinadinos, from taking part in a small act of kindness this week.

Mr Sinadinos decided to reach out to the Mayor of Campbelltown, George Brticevic, and donated 20 vouchers worth $20 each to give to people in the community who are struggling due to the current COVID-19 crisis gripping the state.

“A good meal at the Big Fat is about $17, so $20 is a good start to have the benchmark for where we want to get to with helping the community,” Mr Sinadinos tells The Greek Herald.

“We just want to thank the community. They’ve been great. They’ve supported us so it’s time for us to support them.”

Big Fat Greek at Woodbine donated $400 worth of vouchers to those in need.

In response, Mayor Brticevic thanked Mr Sinadinos and his team for their generosity and complimented them on their lamb mixed gyros meal.

“I cannot believe the generosity of the Campbelltown business community,” Mayor Brticevic wrote on Facebook.

“The food was fantastic… Looking forward to the loud Greek music as well!”

Mr Sinadinos later adds that these vouchers aren’t the only thing he has planned for the locals, telling The Greek Herald he is also looking into putting a meal deal together for tradies to show them appreciation for their hard work.
