MORE than 120 blankets and other winter warmers were donated to ac.care to support vulnerable people coping with cold conditions thanks to the TripleM and SAFM 96.1FM Limestone Coast 2021 blanket appeal.
Community members and businesses dropped off items at the Mount Gambier and Millicent community centres, while the campaign also led to donations in the Riverland and Murraylands.
The Rotary Club of Murray Bridge was among the significant financial supporters to back the campaign and help increase our support for country people at a challenging time of the year as the appeal extended across our regions.
The appeal also attracted significant donations in Milicent this year, including contributions from South East Property Sales, delivering more than $250 worth of new blankets to the Millicent Community Centre, extending benefits of the appeal to people in the Wattle Range Council area.
Mayor Des Noll also dropped into the centre to make a generous donation of $400 on behalf of Wattle Range Council to help us keep vulnerable people in the Millicent and surrounding communities warm in winter.
We are grateful for the partnership with Southern Cross Austereo, including SAFM 96.1 and TripleM Limestone Coast, promoting our winter blanket appeal and the resulting broad support from the community, allowing us to ensure vital supplies were available to people in need.
