Make a Difference!
Did you know? Each week OVER 100,000 people rely on food donations from Foodbank Qld; half of those being children.
Retail First (Toowong Village) have again collaborated with Foodbank Qld and All Purpose Transport to assist local families this Christmas – many who rely on assistance due to external circumstances or hardship.
Our objective this year, is to raise 40 tonnes of non-perishable food items, up until Christmas.
The 2017 Foodbank campaign has the support of well known Foodbank Qld Ambassadors – Petero Civonoceva, Natalie Gruzlewski and Shane Webcke who have assisted in spreading the word to encourage Queenslanders to donate when doing grocery shopping. Natalie Gruzlewski stated “I have seen the work that Foodbank does in the local community, and every item of food you donate into a supermarket cage goes directly to those Queenslanders who need it most.”
HOW YOU CAN HELP:
When doing your groceries at Coles Toowong, simply purchase a non-perishable food item such as a packet of pasta or tin of baked beans and place into the collection cage outside Coles.
