Households in recovery thanks to volunteers

THE Household Resource Centre has furnished 153 family homes, thanks to the generosity of Queenslanders.

Community organisations and volunteers have pitched in to tirelessly sort through the donations, however, 94 families remain on the HRC’s waiting list for the arrival of high-demand items.

High priority items include pillows, drawers, fridges, mowers, toasters, frying pans, pots, pans and saucepans, and volunteers.

“We are not taking any more donations of clothes, linen or toys,” HRC coordinator Lynn Bartley said.

“We’re now requiring packing boxes or 57L plastic containers with lids.

“We’re expecting another three containers in the coming days from Mackay and Maitland in New South Wales.”

Volunteers from the Capella and Clermont Uniting and Assembly of God churches were in Emerald yesterday, donating time to the cause and sorting through the mountains of donations.

Coles staff were also lending a hand.

To volunteer, phone Lynn Bartley on 0427 858 443.
