Some of the wonderful toys sent to children in Gympie who lost their homes in the floods. Again, our thanks to Bill Neil for hand making these for us to donate
Welcome again to another Rainbow Beach DroughtRunners report. August has just been another steady month, with our continuing work with the homeless in Gympie and with Blaze-Aid workers in the Goomeri-Murgon area.
We have sent $1000 to Gympie and $1000 to Goomeri since last report. All our funds at present are going into food supplies to feed those I have mentioned.
I must thank the following for donations:
The Tin Can Bay Dragon Boat club for a wonderful donation after helping at their regatta in very trying conditions in July. Bill Neil in Tin Can Bay for his wonderful homemade wooden toys that have gone this time to the flooded homeless children in Gympie. The Big 4 at Carlo Point continues to fill our bulk bags with 10 cent returns along with Wolf Rock Dive, Josh Sommerville and the many others that fill our bins at 10 Tingira Close in Rainbow.
To those that donated food items including Ace Wholesalers a big thankyou.To all at Tin Can Bay that continue to donate to Wayne Kerle many thanks for your continued support at the Bay Auto sorting station. Our donation tins at Mitchell’s Fruit & Veg, Tin Can Bay Bakery, Ross Creek, Snack Shack, Shell Rainbow Beach, and others help keep us going.
We will be selling goods at the Rainbow Beach Markets in early September to raise more funds.
