Emergency Volunteering for Townsville Flood

11 February 2019

Townsville needs your help!

Queenslanders have always been there to help one another when times are tough, and Townsville needs you now. 150-200 volunteers are required daily for the urgent coordinated clean-up commencing in Townsville this Wednesday 13 February.

Townsville residents or those living in neighbouring regions unaffected by the floods and able to help with both the immediate clean-up and/or longer-term recovery in Townsville and other affected communities are asked to register at: emergencyvolunteering.com.au

These activities will be coordinated by Team Rubicon and Volunteering Queensland will be supporting the recruitment and rostering of all registered volunteers.

The floods have impacted more than 20,000 homes and this will be a mammoth task for Townsville residents, therefore we urge all available Queenslanders to register today.

If you are unable to volunteer your time, you can still contribute to the Flood Appeal by contacting the Australian Red Cross, Uniting Care, Salvation Army, St Vincent’s de Paul and Givit.

Thank you for your willingness to help and we appreciate your support.

For additional information contact 1800 994 100.
