Mr GREG PIPER (Lake Macquarie)—I'd like to acknowledge Vicki Raciti of Wangi Wangi for her tireless work and dedication shown after severe weather devastated parts of NSW. Our state recently suffered heartbreaking blows from storm and flood damage and left many people struggling to rebuild. After the recent flooding in Lismore, Vicki coordinated the collection, management, and delivery of donated supplies to help families in need. Furniture, food, and a variety of other household goods were collected from locals in Lake Macquarie and delivered by Vicki herself to Lismore for those who urgently required it. Vicki's own home became a bustling drop-off centre for these much-needed items as people in the community dug deep to give what they could to help. Vicki serves on the board of Wangi Wangi RSL Club and has always shown a dedicated commitment to helping others. Without members of the community like Vicki, many would still be struggling to provide for their families following the devastating damage caused by the floods. I acknowledge and thank Vicki for her incredible work to provide for families in the Northern Rivers area, and to her local community.
