    Exclamation Vic Bushfires - Free freight for bushfire donations

    Hi Y'all,
    been on the phone to Greyhound Freight this morning and they have decided to send parcels of donations (clothes, blankets, basic stuff) up to 20KG from depots in QLD and NSW to melbourne Depot FOR FREE to help out. They need to be addressed to a registered charity, and I've spoken to the Salvos HQ and they will organise courier pickup at the Melbourne end, so address them to the Salvation Army.

    What you need to do is call the Greyhound office on 1300 473 946, select from the menu for the freight division, then mention that you heard from a member of your Mum's group who "spoke to Kate" that they were doing this, and make a booking. Then you also need to find out your nearest depot and get it there -- if like me you are more than a couple of hours from the depot, you might like to contact others in your area and organise one carload/vanload of parcels to all go up at the same time if you can find someone to volunteer for that job.

    It's something we can all do anyway to help.

    prayers to everyone down there and great thanks to everyone who is helping however they can.

    zooy
    PS they might also take stuff from WA and NT and SA but I was just focused on wld and nsw and didn't ask about that.

    Ohhh, isn't that great! Thanks for passing that on - our nearest depot is over an hour away, so I'll try and organise something. I'll go through all my kids clothes and linen and send down what I can

    Yup, that addy should work I reckon, might be worth buzzing the Salvos on the 13SALVOS HQ line once Greyhound have told you the date the parcel will arrive?

    -- and a big thanx mods for giving this a sticky.

    The offer from Greyhound is good up until Friday this week.

    Gotta love the BubHub it's a great way to get word like this around.
