Supply chain team helps spread Christmas cheer

Over 130 members of the Supply Chain and Logistics Association of Australia (SCLAA), Queensland Division, spent their annual Christmas party for the fifth consecutive year with a twist.

The SCLAA members spent the day packing a record 800 hampers, for Foodbank.

The hampers are distributed to those in need at Christmas – including the unemployed and families with young children living on the poverty line.

”The Foodbank Hamper project is wonderful,” Ken McMillan, General Manager of Foodbank Queensland told the team.

“You are all good people who are helping 800 families at Xmas. I can guarantee that the people who receive these hampers this year will cry because the hampers show that someone actually cares.”

The packing of the hampers was a culmination of 12 months’ work, with over $136,000 worth of goods donated for inclusion.

Foodbank also receives generous support from many companies across the country which assist with goods collection.

Each hamper contains more than $170 worth of food and personal hygiene products.

In the past five years the SCLAA, in conjunction with the Australian Institute of Packaging, the Australian AIP, the Australian Packaging and Processing Machinery Association and the QSCLC, have packed 3200 hampers to the value of over $386,000.

If you would like to be a part of this event in 2015, or wish to donate items for the hampers, contact the SCLAA on: qld@sclaa.com.au
