Hold the Donated Goods Please!

2 Feb 2013

Bundaberg Region just has to be home to the most giving people on the planet but Bundaberg Regional Council is requesting those wishing to donate to "hold fire" for a day or two.

Cr. Lynne Forgan who has been stoically assisting at the Agro Trend Evacuation Centreduring the disaster said people are still wanting to bring donations of food, clothing andother goods to the centre to assist flood victims.

"The gesture is very much appreciated but we simply can't handle any more at this stage,"she said.

"I would ask those people who want to assist to take their donations to organisations like Lifeline and the Salvation Army at the Tom Quinn Centre tomorrow. These groups are able to manage these items and ensure they are appropriately distributed," said Cr. Forgan.

Cash donations to the Queensland Floods Appeal 2013 can be made by calling 1800 811 700 or online at www.redcross.org.au or at any branch of the Commonwealth Bank.
