Community Helping Community

Likeminded residents have rallied together, sending a truckload of material donations to flood affected communities in North Queensland.

Primarily for the smaller and remote communities of Rossville, Wujal, Helensvale and Bloomfield, Jenni Walters turned to Facebook to send out the call for donations.

Particularly asking for linens, towels, pillows, summer clothing, shoes, and home goods, including clothing racks and kitchen utensils, Jenni was inundated with locals wishing to donate.

Jenni does specify that no monetary donations are necessary as residents in these communities aren’t able to receive deliveries and the shops nearby are closed. Plus, food supplies have been delivered to these areas already, and residents are lacking with household goods.

The first truck will be making its trip to these communities next week, so any donations are welcome to be dropped off at Cartridge Universe in Stewart Drive, Cannonvale.

Jenni also sends her thanks to those have already donated and contributed to helping these affected communities.
