A truck left Whyalla on January 9 bound for Adelaide, containing a large number of donations from locals wanting to help.
Owners Les and Susan Burgess said it was the least they could do as a business for people who had been left displaced or lost their homes as a result of severe bushfires in the Adelaide Hills.
“We decided to give back,” Mrs Burgess said.
The business had been a drop-off point for community donations but also helped to transport Shoeboxes of Love collected by registered drop off point, Australian Mortgage Brokers.
Mrs Burgess said they were working closely with BlazeAid that would ensure the donations they had collected would reach where it was most needed.
“We’ll be delivering the donations to selected locations, which will then be distributed to people in need,” Mrs Burgess said.
The business was inundated with donations such as non-perishable food, clothes, nappies, toilet paper, toiletries and manchester.
Receptionist Prue Tooby and staff member Thomas Shannon helped to organise the items ready for transport.
Mrs Tooby said the community had been generous in wanting to help those affected.
“I was overwhelmed by how many donations we received,” Mrs Tooby said.
Mrs Tooby said it was good to see community members “paying it forward” by giving items to people truly in need.
“It’s great to see the community coming together to support another community,” Mrs Tooby said.
