Bringing Warmth to Those in Need

As temperatures drop, the Toowoomba community is gearing up for the annual Winter Warmth Appeal at Grand Central, running from Thursday, 16 May to Saturday, 18 May.

This heartwarming initiative, led by Civic Assist, invites residents to donate winter clothing and bedding to support families and individuals facing tough times during the colder months.

This appeal aligns with similar charitable efforts across Australia, highlighting the nationwide concern for vulnerable communities.

A Simple Gesture with Big Impact

Civic Assist’s mission to provide warmth and comfort is supported by Grand Central, which has set up a mega collection point on Level One, near Myer. “We invite the community to deliver quality pre-loved and new winter clothing and bedding to the redemption booth,” says Community Relations Manager Georgina Bayly.

As an added incentive, the first 50 donors of a large bag of items will receive a $20 gift card to spend at Grand Central.

The Role of Community Generosity

The General Manager of Civic Assist emphasises the profound impact of these donations, noting that a single bag of warm clothes and blankets can significantly uplift families in need.

It’s a simple yet powerful way for the community to show their support and care.

This sentiment resonates with similar charitable initiatives across Australia, where local efforts collectively make a substantial difference.

Extended Support Beyond the Collection Point

While Grand Central serves as a central donation point from 16 to 18 May, the Winter Warmth Appeal continues until Friday, 28 June, with various collection points throughout Toowoomba.

This extended period allows more time for the community to contribute and ensures a steady flow of donations to those who need them most.
