Time to dig deep as Vinnies Winter Appeal begins
GLADSTONE residents have been urged to dig deep.
St Vincent de Paul Society Queensland's annual Winter Appeal is underway.
State president John Forrest said the three-month appeal aimed to raise at least $750,000 to help those who struggle every day.
"More than 280,000 people seek assistance from Vinnies each year and we are asking the community to dig deep as the weather turns chilly," he said.
"Financial donations help us make sure they get what they need, which can be food, clothing, temporary accommodation or assistance paying bills during these colder months.
"The money you give can give a child the tools to get an education, petrol for the breadwinner to get to work, scripts for pensioners and food when the cupboard runs bare."
