    The AIP and SCLAA pack 600 hampers for foodbank

    • Australian Institute of Packaging

    Over ninety five members of the SCLAA, Queensland Division, in conjunction with the Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP), spent their annual Christmas party for the third consecutive year with a twist. The members spent three hours packing 600 hampers for Foodbank to distribute to those in need at Christmas, many of whom are people without employment, families with young children, or homeless.

    As Ken McMillan, General Manager of Foodbank Queensland said on the day;

    "The 600 hampers will be distributed to families in crisis at Christmas time and whilst none of you will ever meet those people you should all be proud of what you have done for them."

    The packing of the hampers was the culmination of twelve months of work, over $60,000 worth of goods raised to go inside the hampers and generous support from many companies across the country. Each hamper is worth $100 and is made up of food and personal hygiene products.

    In three years, the SCLAA in conjunction with the AIP, have packed 1,800 hampers to the value of over $180,000. The APPMA joined the program for the first time this year. If you would like to be a part of this event in 2013, or wish to donate items for the hampers, please contact the AIP on info@aipack.com.au.
