Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk last night donated a total of $400,000, on behalf of all Queenslanders, to four charities – and she encouraged locals to also make a personal donation.
St Vincent de Paul Society, UnitingCare Queensland, The Smith Family and The Salvation Army each received a cheque of $100,000 from the Premier to support their community work.
Ms Palaszczuk said: “Throughout Queensland, whether it is Brisbane, Gold Coast, Longreach, Cairns, Townsville or Toowoomba, our charities provide a helping hand to residents [in need].

“It doesn’t matter how big or small the donation is, whether it is clothes, unwanted items or a few dollars, the impact of everyone’s small acts of generosity can be life changing for those people in need,” said the Premier.
