St Vincent de Paul Society Queensland this week thanked the State Government for their generosity as they were handed a $100,000 cheque for their annual Christmas Appeal by Premier Annastacia Palaszckuk.

CEO Peter Maher said Vinnies can help ‘rebuild the strength’ of many disadvantaged Queenslanders this Christmas with the welcome funds.

“It could help provide a blanket over someone’s shoulders, a roof over their head for a night, a food hamper personally delivered into their kitchen, a medical prescription purchased, or a bill paid to keep the power on,” he said.
