Warm some­one’s life this win­ter in ap­peal

Do­nate pre-loved cloth­ing to those in need

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS - By Inge Hansen

WE all have clothes sit­ting in our cup­boards that haven’t seen the light of day for quite some time.

In­stead of throw­ing the ne­glected items away, Ray White Whit­sun­day is en­cour­ag­ing the pub­lic to do­nate un­used cloth­ing and shoes to those in need through their new Win­ter Ap­peal. Owner of Ray White Whit­sun­day, Mark Beale, said with cold weather creep­ing in, it was a chance to make a dif­fer­ence in some­one’s life.

“Ev­ery­body has a bit of a clean up ev­ery now and then and we thought it would be a great op­por­tu­nity to give (clothes) to fam­i­lies or sin­gle par­ents who could do with the ex­tra blan­kets and clothes,” he said. “We see it through our job that there’s a lot of peo­ple in rentals that are re­ally strug­gling to pay their rent and things.”

Ray White Whit­sun­day started the Win­ter Ap­peal this year and staff have al­ready jumped on board and do­nated some of their own un­used items.

The do­na­tions will be col­lected by Whit­sun­day Cri­sis and Coun­selling who will then dis­trib­ute the items to those in need.

Pack­aged food and drinks are also en­cour­aged as do­na­tions.

Any­one can make a con­tri­bu­tion by drop­ping any do­na­tions to the Ray White Whit­sun­day Of­fice at Reef Plaza be­fore the mid­dle of July.

For more in­for­ma­tion con­tact Ray White Whit­sun­day on 4948 8588.
