About $50,000 worth of damage has been caused to Endeavour Recycled Clothing in High Street, Penrith.
The final touches were being made before the expected opening, when a severe hail and rain storm hit the area about 2pm yesterday.
For the volunteers and staff who have worked so hard on the store, it was a heartbreaking moment as they watched helplessly as water poured in over the fixtures and stock.
The store is severely damaged and some stock is ruined, but thankfully nobody was injured.
Endeavour Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation which provides opportunities for more than 3,500 people with a disability throughout Sydney and Queensland.
The organisation provides supported employment, training and development opportunities to more than 400 people with a disability in Sydney, through its three business services in Mt Druitt, Seven Hills and Castle Hill.
Endeavour Foundation runs 35 op-shops, called Endeavour Recycled Clothing, throughout Queensland and the Penrith store is the first in Sydney.
All Endeavour Recycled Clothing proceeds go to Endeavour Foundation’s efforts of supporting people with a disability.
The opening of the Penrith store was scheduled for the week before Christmas to try and attract Christmas shoppers.
But with severe damage to the store the opening is expected to be delayed by a month, adding to the financial sting of the disaster.
To be able to open within a month Endeavour Foundation is pleading with the Sydney community to help through volunteering.
Whether you can help with the clean up or volunteer in-store once it is up and running, every hour of volunteering helps. To volunteer call (07) 3908 7162 or 0417 574 674.
