Community Shows Generosity

Loads of Love
After launching on the 27th of November, and in just 15 days, the METRO Care Loads of Love Appeal has seen more than 6500kg of non-perishable food and personal items donated to help families in the Toowoomba region who are doing it tough.

This equates to more than 100 shopping trolleys full of food or 650 bags of much needed items being delivered to families in our region needing a little Christmas cheer.

Many individuals, families and businesses have generously donated to the Appeal resulting in enough non-perishable goods to support more than 500 households. This means about 150 extra households will receive support this year than would normally be assisted.

METRO Care Operations Manager, Matt Gregg said, “We are blown away by the generosity of this community and are thankful for every contribution, large and small.”

“Every year we hear stories from the families and households that receive support about how much of a difference your generosity makes.”

“Often they are overwhelmed that strangers would care enough to help them celebrate Christmas.”

“It’s true that just one kilo can help change the lives of others.”

Mr Gregg said that the greatest strength of the Loads of Love Appeal is the collaboration of business, not-for-profit organisations and individuals that are committed to improving the general wellbeing of the broader community.

The Loads of Love Appeal and the resulting donations would not be possible without the backing of official sponsors and supporters along with the support of many others who have made generous contributions to this year’s appeal.

The hard work continues across Christmas as volunteers pack and distribute the food and more donations are welcome.

Anyone wanting to donate to the Loads of Love Appeal is encouraged to contact the METRO Care office on 4631 5822.
