Industry packed 1100x Hampers for those in need

On Friday the 9th of December over 170 people from the SCLAA Queensland Division, the QLD Supply Chain and Logistics Conference (QSCLC), the AIP and the APPMA, spent their Christmas Party packing over 1100 hampers for Foodbank to provide to those in need during the holiday season. The hampers included 800 family hampers, 200 ladies packs and 110 children’s packs. The total value of the hampers was over $120,000 worth of items that were either donated, or the funds raised for, by the industry. The hampers would not be possible without the continued support from the industry including Campbells Arnotts, Colgate, Ego Pharmaceuticals, Edex, Tip Top GW Foods, All Purpose Transport, Office Max, BDO, APPMA, Orora, Linde Forklifts, Tip Top Foodservice -GW Foods, Coles and Department of Housing and Public Works. Over the last five years, the team has packed 5400 hampers to the value of close to $660,000 for people in need and looks forward to even more hampers in 2017.
