Council's Christmas Hamper Appeal 2020 decked the homes with 210 hampers
Maranoa residents’ Christmas will be a touch merrier after Council’s Christmas Hamper Appeal distributed 210 hampers, made possible by the region’s generosity.
The community donated an overwhelming amount of food items while also contributing approximately $1,600. Additionally, 167 children will have presents under the Christmas tree after Salvation Army provided a generous selection of toys.
Mayor Tyson Golder is heartened by the region's willingness to support such a worthy cause.
"On behalf of Council, thank you to all who donated and I would also like to give a special shout out to the St John's students who assisted in preparing the hampers," Cr Golder said.
"We hope everyone enjoys their hampers and has a very safe, peaceful and enjoyable Christmas."
