Dig deep to help less-fortunate Gladstone school children

A Gladstone property urges locals to dig deep when shopping for school supplies and purchase a few extra items to donate to charity.

For the fifth year in a row, Remax Gold Gladstone is hosting its Back-to-School Supply Drive to help the Roseberry charity.

Remax Gold Gladstone will be accepting school equipment donations at its Mellefont Street office starting January 4th.

Remax Gold Gladstone owner Shane McLeod encouraged locals to dig deep to help the less fortunate.

“As you start buying your school books and supplies, we’d love to see you buy a few extra items for our fifth annual school supply,” McLeod wrote.

Remax Gold Gladstone is holding a fifth back-to-school campaign to support the Roseberry charity.

“All donations go to Roseberry Qld to be distributed to local families and children in need. “Last year we helped over 240 local children in need to go back to school with the necessary equipment.

“From elementary school to high school. If it’s new and it’s on a book list, we’ll take it.

“School bags, lunch boxes and gift certificates are also required.”

Everything from lead and colored pencils and pens to pencil cases, glue sticks, scissors, rulers, calculators, notebooks, contacts, labels, backpacks, coupons, and folders can help someone who may not be able to afford them.

Roseberry is a Queensland-based charity with offices in Gladstone that helps young people and families in difficulty.

The charity was founded in 1986 when a committee was formed to apply for funding for a youth home in Gladstone.
