Yellow Bucket Appeal begins

YellowBridge QLD has launched its 6th Yellow Bucket Christmas Appeal, which fills yellow buckets with special Christmas food and gifts them to local people who need a little festive joy.

The majority of the Christmas food and products are donated by YellowBridge staff, partners and suppliers who have embraced the annual appeal and the opportunity to ‘give back’ to others in their local community.

The emphasis is on Christmas food that is gourmet or special rather than staple food items, which are covered so well by other Christmas appeal initiatives in the region.

Recipients are chosen based on their known need. YellowBridge staff then deliver the hampers prior to Christmas Day to people who either live alone, have a disability or need to know that someone cares. They are also distributed to people nominated by YellowBridge’s peer organisations in the housing, disability, youth and aged services sectors.

“It is a true collaboration between us, our partners and our like-minded industry peers to deliver these beautiful buckets of joy to people at this special time of year,” YellowBridge CEO Adrian Bonica said.

Toowoomba accounting firm, McConachie Stedman, is the Appeal’s major sponsor for the fifth year and their support helps with the costs of running the initiative.
