Bank staff help 15 vulnerable families through appeal

STAFF from Bendigo Bank are ensuring 15 needy families will have a wonderful Christmas this year after generously signing up to help with the Queensland Times' for the Adopt-A-Family appeal.

Staff from nine branches across Ipswich and Brisbane's western suburbs, as well as a department in the bank's head office, have been collecting non-perishable food items and toys for their hampers, which will be delivered to their 'adopted' families just in time for the holidays.

Bendigo Bank have been involved in the Adopt-A-Family appeal for the past 14 years.

Jasmine Gnech said the bank was proud to support a worthy cause.

"We are passionate about supporting local communities and are very proud that we have the opportunity to make Christmas a little easier for our 'adopted' families again this year," she said.

"I love that I am part of an organisation that support staff to be involved in things we are passionate about. Every year I look forward to purchasing special items that I know will make someone's day magical."

Customers who drop in to Bendigo branches at Ipswich Central, Yamanto, Brassall, Booval, Rosewood, Springfield, Redbank, Boonah or Mt Ommaney will also be able to drop off donations to help boost the hampers until December 10.
