Stockland has today donated $20,000 to assist recovery efforts in Northern Queensland following the devastating effects of recent floods in Townsville and surrounding areas.
The donation, made via Queensland Flooding campaign drive GIVIT, will help support the immediate and long-term needs of the affected community with all funds used to purchase essential items for those affected by the floods.
Mark Steinert, Managing Director and CEO at Stockland, said: “Our thoughts are with all of our colleagues and customers in the Townsville area who are dealing with the aftermath of this horrible flood event.
“We know the people of Northern Queensland are highly resilient and it’s great to see the local community coming together to help with clean-up and relief efforts.
“We have a long history of investment in the Townville region through our Shopping Centre and North Shore residential community, both impacted to different degrees in the floods.
“We are firmly committed to Townsville and are proud to lend a hand to help the local community get back on their feet.”
“I want to praise the efforts and coordination from government and emergency services during, and in the aftermath of this severe weather event and we’re pleased to play our small part in the recovery effort,” Mr Steinert said.
