Australian Red Cross Benalla Manager, Ann Bailey, is calling for donations to help Tasmanian flood and Queensland bushfire victims.
As the Australian summer continues to wreak havoc across parts of the country, Australian Red Cross Benalla is calling for donations to help those affected by these natural disasters.
Community members are asked to make cash donations, which will go directly to victims of the Tasmanian bushfires and Queensland floods.
If you have items that you would prefer to donate these can be sold by the Red Cross store and the profits given directly to the appeal.
Australian Red Cross Benalla manager Ann Bailey reminds the community that ‘‘everything over $2 is tax deductible, (so) bring it into the store and get a receipt.’’
Those interested are urged to donate as soon as possible to enable much-needed funds to reach the victims of the bushfires and floods in a timely manner.
Volunteers will be collecting donations in the main street from February 12 to 15.
Donations can also be made at Australian Red Cross, 59 Carrier St, Benalla, or phone 5762
