Linking Donors with Recipients

Submitted by webmaster on Sat, 15/01/2011 - 3:57pm

I've been asked by people wanting to donate goods to be able to get into contact with those who might need those goods.
 
Given Emergency relief organisations seem to be overwhelmed at the moment we thought we would create a Donations forum area of our website to allow locals to either
1) Identify people who have things to donate
2) Identify specific needs for affected residents
and link them up together.

Flood Update from Councillor Nicole Johnston

Submitted by webmaster on Sat, 15/01/2011 - 8:20am

Clean up efforts are underway around flood affected suburbs as waters recede. Its is a massive task as hundreds if not thousands of homes right across the ward have been inundated causing catastrophic damage.
 
Council and the army will be around over coming days in our area assisting with the clean up.
 
Please be very careful if you are involved in clean up activities snakes are about. Please take precautions - sunscreen, hats, sensible shoes and clothes, drink plenty of water and other fluids.
