    Premier welcomes Commonwealth Bank donation to Debbie recovery

    Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has welcomed Commonwealth Bank of Australia’s donation of $100,000 and an additional $38,000 from its customers to help cyclone and flood-affected residents and communities.

    The Premier said Commonwealth Bank has provided its donation to the Australian Red Cross Society.

    “My Government made a $1 million contribution to four charities, including Red Cross, that are working on the ground to support Queenslanders severely impacted by Debbie and flooding that followed,” Ms Palaszczuk said.

    The Premier encouraged anyone wanting to help their fellow Queenslanders to make a donation directly with a respected charity:

     “These charities are trained to respond to the needs of communities hit by natural disasters and can provide food, equipment, shelter, and other support,” she said.

     Goods and services can also be donated to GIVIT through their website www.givit.org.au.
