$100,000 donation to the North Queensland Flood Appeal

18 February 2019

Following a significant flooding event in large areas of northern Queensland in late January and early February 2019, the Premier of Queensland launched a special fundraising appeal for businesses and community to assist those in need.

The appeal called for contributions to Non-Government Organisation partners of the Queensland Government, specialising in emergency response and disaster recovery, including – The Australian Red Cross Society, UnitingCare, Salvation Army, St Vincent de Paul Society Queensland, and GIVIT.

As a long-term member of the Queensland community, Mitsubishi Development decided to donate a total of $100,000 to the fundraising appeal. Through this initiative, $20,000 was donated to each of the five charities, to assist with flood recovery efforts associated with the Townsville flooding.

Our company’s funds were used to directly purchase essential items for families that were affected by the floods, and whose homes were either damaged or destroyed. These essential items such as white goods, beds, linen, clothing, food vouchers, or electronics helped households get back on their feet following the disaster.

Mitsubishi Development’s funds were co-mingled with other generous corporate and community donations to provide crucial support in the areas of counselling, chaplain services, temporary meal hubs, pastoral support, and financial counselling. Through the incredible efforts of the Australian Red Cross Society, UnitingCare, Salvation Army, St Vincent de Paul Society Queensland, and GIVIT, Mitsubishi Development was able to directly and indirectly support thousands of its fellow Queenslanders, recovering from this unprecedented flooding event.
