Early Xmas start for Smith Family
THE Bank of Queensland (BOQ) has started helping The Smith Family collect thousands of toys and books for disadvantaged children ahead of Christmas.
The branch in the City Centre will act as a drop-off point for donations throughout November.
BOQ local branch manager Howard Nicholson said his staff is looking forward to putting a smile on many children's faces.
“We're hoping to collect a lot of books for the nine-to-12 age group, as in the past this has been the group that The Smith Family hasn't received enough donations for,” Mr Nicholson said.
“All people need to do is drop a book or toy into our branch in November and we'll be more than happy to act as Santa's elves on behalf of The Smith Family and the Bank.
This year The Smith Family is aiming to deliver 17,000 toy and book packs to disadvantaged children across the country.
