Pine Rivers Gives Generously to Flood Victims
State Member for Pine Rivers has today thanked Pine Rivers residents for their display of generosity in supporting Queensland flood victims.
Mr Holswich organized a collection point for the Queensland Flood Appeal at Westfield Strathpine over two days earlier this week.
“The generosity of Pine Rivers residents in giving their time and money to support the Appeal has been overwhelming,” Mr Holswich said.
“Over the two days we raised $2,854.40 that will go to Queenslanders in need via the Red Cross Queensland Flood Appeal”.
“I was also overwhelmed with offers from people wanting to volunteer their time to assist with the collection.”
“The management of Westfield Strathpine were also fantastic in helping us organize this collection at such short notice,” Mr Holswich added.
“It is always pleasing to see our community come together to support others in times of crisis.”
Donations are still desperately needed for the Queensland Flood Appeal. Donations can be made by phoning 1800 811 700, online at www.redcross.org.au, or at any Australia Post or major bank.
