Local real estate agency, RE/MAX Gold Gladstone, and Roseberry Community Services, are calling for the generous Gladstone community, to pull together for less fortunate, local school kids and families, by donating back-to-school supplies in time for the 2017 school year. RE/MAX Gladstone co-owners, Shane McLeod & Cyndi Ward, have both seen and experienced their hometown struggle through a very tough four years, as the Gladstone Region once again finds its feet on the back of recent projects winding down. Looking for some way to help those in need going forward, the RE/MAX Gold team came up with the idea to help with a school supply drive, in time for families with kids doing it a bit tougher, ready for the 2017 school year. Partnering with Roseberry Community Services, all donated items will be distributed to local region school kids and families, who may be struggling a little to make ends meet, following the Christmas period, and what has been a challenging year for a lot of Gladstone locals.

“This is a simple and relatively inexpensive exercise a lot of locals can help with, just by picking up a few small items on the weekly shop, or grabbing a couple of extras when shopping for their own kids’ school lists,” said Shane. “That extra box of colouring pencils, a couple of exercise books, gluestick, or even a backpack, could make the world of difference to a family finding it hard to get their kids prepared for the new school year.”

The RE/MAX Gladstone team is ready to accept school items at their office at 2 Mellefont Street, across from the Gladstone Turf Club, and thank our wonderful local community for again, supporting one of the many children’s projects close to their hearts.

Cyndi advises “If it’s on a school books list, we’ll take it and make sure it reaches the families who need it via our community partner, Roseberry Community Services. We’ll even accept vouchers and do the shopping for you. We’re looking forward to the big-hearted Gladstone community, supporting the school supply drive and can’t wait to offer support for these families for the coming school year.” All donations gratefully accepted at RE/MAX Gold Gladstone office by Wednesday, January 11th, 2017.
