Premier Campbell Newman has launched the Queensland Flood Appeal
2013, a Queensland Government/Red Cross partnership to help
Queenslanders impacted by recent floods and storms.
The Newman Government has kick-started the appeal with a $1 million donation.
Mr Newman encouraged all Queenslanders to give to the appeal to help those in need.
“The destructive force of the weather caused by Cyclone Oswald has affected communities from the Cape to the New South Wales border,” Mr Newman said.
“Some communities have been particularly hard hit with extensive damage caused by flooding and destructive storm cells.
“The money raised through the appeal will go directly to helping those in need.
“Financial support at times like these can make a huge difference to the lives of those affected.
“I ask all Queenslanders to give generously to this worthy cause.”
Donations can be made by calling 1800 811 700 or visiting www.redcross.org.au.
