More than 140 members of the Supply Chain and Logistics Association of Australia (SCLAA), Queensland Division, spent their annual Christmas party for the fourth consecutive year with a twist.
 
The SCLAA members spent the afternoon hours packing 600 hampers for Foodbank to distribute to those in need at Christmas.
 
The hampers are earmarked for the unemployed, families with young children and those living on the poverty line.
 
Ken McMillan, General Manager of Foodbank Queensland said the hampers would brighten up the day for many.
 
“We at Foodbank are grateful to the SCLAA and its members for this wonderful initiative each year.”
 
The packing of the hampers was a culmination of 12 month’s work.
 
Companies across the country donated more than $70,000 worth of goods to help fill the hampers.
 
Each hamper is worth over $100 and is made up of food and personal hygiene products. In four years the SCLAA, in conjunction with the Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) and the Australian Packaging and Processing Machinery Association (APPMA), have packed 2400 hampers worth more than $250,000
 
If you would like to be a part of the event in 2014, or would like to donate hamper items contact the SCLAA on qld@sclaa.com.au
