It is amazing to see how many community groups have put their hand up to support those people affected by the flood crisis. Our communities really do come together in times of need and I am so honoured to have so many within the Glass House electorate. St Vincent de Paul are one of the main Australia wide charities that are collecting donations of food, blankets and furniture etc and they can be contacted on 1800 173 349.
In our own local area, I am aware that the Maleny Branch of the QCWA are supporting flood victims through the Public Rural Crisis Fund visit website www.qcwa.org.au for more information and also the Maleny Uniting Church will be collecting donated items weekdays from 9.30am to 3pm. The Premier’s Disaster Relief Appeal has also been set up to take monetary donations and contact details can be found on website www.qld.gov.au/floods.
