Gladstone Ports Corporation (GPC) is continuing its Christmas tradition of supporting families in need by donating to a local charity.
GPC has named Anglicare Central Queensland its 2017 beneficiary, contributing $2,000 to help its efforts in sharing the true spirit of Christmas.
GPC CEO Peter O’Sullivan says the funds will go directly to helping those affected by financial hardship, disability or illness.
“We believe Christmas should be a time of joy and celebration,” Mr O’Sullivan said.
“We are proud to be supporting Anglicare’s commitment to ensuring families have presents under the tree and dinner on the table this festive season,” Mr O’Sullivan said.
GPC has been supporting local charities at Christmas for the past 13 years through its Community Investment Program.
The program is currently rotating between Anglicare Central Queensland, The Salvation Army, St Vincent de Paul Society and Uniting Care – Lifeline Gladstone.
“This year, GPC also provided a $1,000 donation to The Salvation Army, as part of the Santos GLNG Mayor’s Carols held at GPC’s Marina Parklands last Friday night,” Mr O’Sullivan said.
“On behalf of GPC, I’d also like to extend our best wishes to everyone in the community for a very Merry Christmas and a happy, safe and prosperous New Year.”
