What would you do if you couldn't keep warm? What would you do if you couldn't keep your family warm? How would you stay safe if you didn't have a home to shelter in? Where would you turn if you couldn't put food on the table? When faced with unexpected circumstances and uncertain times, many people across the south west turn to Lifeline Darling Downs and South West Qld Ltd. The need has never been greater. As energy, transport and housing costs rise, hundreds of households across Toowoomba and south west Queensland are feeling the pinch. With winter fast approaching, many families won’t be able to keep themselves warm. Some families are even forced to make the difficult choice between food and keeping their homes warm. People dealing with financial challenges and circumstances beyond their control are more likely to develop health problems and become homeless if they do not receive assistance. We need your help. In collaboration with LJ Hooker Toowoomba, Lifeline Darling Downs, is asking the public and businesses to partner with us and dig deep to help raise at least $25,000 to support residents of south west Queensland needing assistance during the winter months. Your donation will make a world of difference to a person or a family in need. It will provide LDDSWQL with funds for emergency housing, clothing and blankets, food packages, free counselling and other forms of support, including Winter Shelter Toowoomba. Donate now or create your own fundraiser to involve your friends, family and colleagues. Every donation is tax-deductible and will help us provide support when needed most.
