Not everyone enjoys the luxury of having flannelette sheets and a heater to come home to during the colder months.
For the month of June Federal Member for Bonner Ross Vasta is encouraging all locals to spare a thought for someone doing it tough in winter and donate a blanket.
Mr Vasta said he is working alongside Rosies – Friends on the street in Wynnum, and Mt Gravatt Community Centre to gather blankets for them to give to locals in need.
“Rosies and the Mt Gravatt Community Centre do a lot of great work in our local community and I’m always keen to help out wherever I can for locals who are having a hard time.
“I’ve started the ball rolling by donating three new blankets, and I’ve already had a number of people come into the office to donate some new and pre-loved blankets to this cause as well.”
Mr Vasta said they don’t have to be new blankets as long as they’re clean and in good condition.
Donations can be dropped into Ross Vasta MP at 69 Clara Street Wynnum any weekday between now and the end of July between 9am and 4:30pm.
