Members of Supply Chain and Logistics Association of Australia (SCLAA) Queensland Division spent their annual Christmas party for the fourth consecutive year with a twist.
Over 140 members of SCLAA, Queensland Division spent the afternoon hours packing 600 hampers for Foodbank to distribute to those in need at Christmas, many of whom are without employment, families with young children and living on the poverty line.
Ken McMillan, General Manager of Foodbank Queensland explains the 600 hampers will be distributed to families in crisis at Christmas time, helping to brighten up the day for many.
The packing of the hampers was a culmination of twelve months of work, over $70,000 worth of goods raised to go inside the hampers and generous support from many companies across the country.
Each hamper is worth over $100 and is made up of food and personal hygiene products. In four years the SCLAA, in conjunction with the AIP and the APPMA have packed 2400 hampers to the value of over $250,000.
