Community Digs Deep to Support Christmas Charity Appeal

A growing number of local businesses, charities and individuals have given generously to the Cassowary Coast Regional Council’s 2017 Gold Star Community Christmas Appeal.

One business that is always happy to help is the MAMS Group who manages the transfer stations and landfill sites for the CCRC.

“As a contractor to Council it’s important that we support Council and community initiatives wherever possible. It’s also important for us to give back to the communities that support us. This is one way we can assist those in our community who are maybe finding it difficult at this time of the year,” said Bernice Day, Managing Director of MAMS Group.

Currently almost 75% of the fundraising goal of $10,000 has been achieved.

“I am so impressed with the generosity shown by those in our community who have supported this fantastic fundraising effort. It makes a huge difference when we all work together to achieve a common goal. It gives me great satisfaction to know that many families will now be enjoying a good meal this Christmas,” Mayor John Kremastos said.

Donations will be accepted up until 3:00pm on Friday 22 December, 2017.

Gold Stars can be purchased at the Shire Hall, Innisfail, Civic Centre, Tully and Council Libraries at Innisfail, Tully, Wongaling Beach and Cardwell. Credit card payments can be made by calling Cassowary Coast Regional Council Customer Service 1 300 763 903.
