Endeavour Foundation response to flood victim items in Bundaberg store

18 September 2013

The following statement may be attributed to Endeavour Foundation Recycled Clothing Operations Manager Mick Gerrard.

“Endeavour Foundation Recycled Clothing stores get all of our second-hand stock from our donation bins, people bringing items into the store or people who phone and ask us to collect items.

Endeavour Foundation Bundaberg does not get donations from Council refuse or recycling.

Endeavour Foundation Bundaberg has not received any donations either small or large, at any point, from the Mud Army.

However since the floods a number of people have come into the store to make purchases in replacement of items they lost during the floods and I’ve been pleased that we were able to help them replace lost items in some way.

We are very grateful for the generous donations of quality used goods we receive on a daily basis.

We are always looking for quality pre-loved items to stock our stores – so please give us a call if you have items to donate, or bring them in. If you think something is good enough to give to a friend, that’s the sort of good quality item that we would love to offer for sale in our stores.

Your donations enable us to raise vital funds to support people with a disability to have the choices of an ordinary life.”

Endeavour Foundation is an independent not-for-profit organisation supporting people with a disability in over 3,700 placements from 230 locations throughout Queensland and in Sydney. These include accommodation, education, training, vocational and lifestyle opportunities. Find out more at endeavour.com.au.
