Win­ter is com­ing

Stanthorpe Border Post - - NEWS | YOUR SAY -

AS WIN­TER nears Anne Ar­mansin will be pre­par­ing for the in­creased de­mand for her help.

Anne is an en­ergy ex­pert for St Vin­cent de Paul So­ci­ety Queens­land who helps peo­ple in need keep their elec­tric­ity on and their power costs down.

Au­tumn is one of the busiest times on her cal­en­dar be­cause for many dis­ad­van­taged Queens­lan­ders, the win­ter months bring worry and a sense of dread about their power bills. They have to choose whether to use their heaters to help sur­vive the cold and go with­out ba­sic items like food, or shiver through the win­ter months.

Our Au­tumn Ap­peal is an im­por­tant fundrais­ing ef­fort which al­lows us to help peo­ple in need get ready for the win­ter months.

The ap­peal runs un­til May. Tax de­ductible donations can be made at vin­nies.org.au/do­nate (se­lect Qld) or call 13 18 12. — John For­rest State pres­i­dent, St Vin­cent de Paul So­ci­ety Queens­land
