QGSA's RESPONSE TO OUR BUSHFIRE CRISIS:
We've had several enquiries as to what our plans are to help those who have lost so much during the recent bushfires. We do have a Guild policy that provides guidelines for our response strategy, which was developed several years ago following previous national disasters. It can be found on our website page if you'd like to have a read. 
The Executive Committee does not meet again until late January, by which time I suspect that we will all have a clearer idea as to how best we can respond to requests for support.
I know that within my own local area they have asked us to stop offering goods and instead financial contributions are being sought. Here is an online link to what I believe to be one of the preferred charities:
Vinnies SA Bushfire Appeal December 2019
We will keep in touch with all of our members once we have identified the best way that we can be supportive. That said, if one of our own members has lost everything in a recent bushfire please do make us aware of it as that has every chance of impacting on any decisions that we make.
