Telco steps up for charity on the Gold Coast

A TELCO has decided to help out a Gold Coast Charity, which feeds and clothes the homeless.

Telstra has launched its Food Drive for Rosies Friends on the Street.

Gold Coast Area General Manager Darren Clark said “we’ve got quite a number of people that live and work in the community and one of our team members actually came up with the idea of supporting Rosies”.

“We thought well, why not?  It’s such a great local cause, let’s get involved and give something back,” Mr Clark said.

The general public can help out too by making a donation of non perishable food or drinks “they can pop it into one of our Telstra stores on the Gold Coast and yeah we’d be delighted to have that additional support”.

Mr Clark finished “it’s fantastic to be able to provide this level of support for people that are in crises and the guys at Rosies do an excellent job with people that just need assistance in times of crisis, you know, when they’re down and out”.

Recently we learned that Rosies Drop Inn Centre is looking for a new place to call home with the Mal Burke car park being sold by City of Gold Coast to help fund the development of its Evandale Cultural Precinct.

A new location has not yet been found.
