The METRO Care Loads of Love Appeal aims to make Christmas just that little bit better for families doing it tough by asking people from across the region to donate a Loads of Love bag filled with donations of non-perishable food items such as canned food, pasta, cereal, meal bases as well as toiletries.
Now in its eighth year, the Loads of Love Appeal has set the ambitious target of gathering 15,000 kilos for distribution by Lifeline Darling Downs & SW Queensland to deserving households in Southern Queensland.
Once again the Loads of Love Appeal is partnering with Heritage Bank to widen its collection capabilites. All 60 Heritage Bank branches will act as collection points. Appeal organiser, Matt Gregg, said people wishing to help can pick up a red Loads of Love bag at any Heritage branch, and then return the bag to their local branch or to participating Harvey Norman Stores in Toowoomba, Kingaroy, Warwick or Dalby.
Matt said, “Loads of Love is simple, easy and accessible to everyone to assist. We can all make a difference, and be a part of spreading some Christmas cheer in our local communities.”
