FAMILIES in need throughout the South Burnett can enjoy a hearty Christmas dinner thanks to the generosity of the community.

This month South Burnett Regional Council staff from around the region have generously donated and collected non-perishable food items in an effort to support the Salvation Army's Food Hamper Appeal.

Mayor Wayne Kratzmann said the staff had done an amazing job.

"Full credit to all of the customer service team who were on a mission to make a difference to families in the South Burnett," he said.

Each year the Salvation Army seeks assistance by asking for donations of non-perishable food items, including plum puddings, Christmas cakes, tins of ham, cans of vegetables or bottles of soft drink.

These items are then packaged and given to families and individuals who are unable to buy these items to create a Christmas meal.

Salvation Army welfare officer Kathy Rosenberger said she was grateful for the community's assistance.

The Salvation Army will be closed from Christmas Day and will re-open on Monday, January 7.

If you have an emergency the Salvos can help with during this time, contact 0407220975.
