Care Outreach Flood update

After the trip made by Care Outreach personnel earlier in the week, and feedback from our Area Coordinators for the regions devastated by the Floods, we have teams heading out to begin the work in the Condamine and Chinchilla regions in the coming days.  This is going to be long and for the most part slow as travel and property access is limited to the major roads as the smaller roads and tracks are still inaccessible and in some cases have been totally washed away.  

We will begin to get specific family by family, property by property needs, and will then be able to call on volunteers to fill the specific tasks.

We are no longer taking any pre-loved goods.  The response has been phenominal and our warehouse and overflow is almost full. 

New items – particularly pillows & linen, workwear, non-perishable food and toiletries are very much needed.  And the Bushman brand of Insect Repellent is required in large quantities.

Our hours for drop-off deliveries has changed and we will only be able to received goods between 9am & 2pm Mon – Fri.  The office is open for enquiries between 8.30 & 3.

About Care Outreach

Bill & Melissa Close founded Care Outreach in the early 1990's. Whilst travelling as itinerant ministers to churches and communities throughout Australia they travelled to a drought-stricken region and were struck by the disadvantages faced by Bush people. From then on the focus of their ministry shifted to caring for the physical, emotional and spiritual well-being of people in Rural and Remote Australia.
