The annual Loads of Love Appeal invites the community to fill special Loads of Love bags with non-perishable food and personal items to be distributed to households in need during the Christmas season.
As a customer-owned bank, giving back to our community is part of our DNA. That’s why in 2021, Heritage are continuing a long-standing partnership with Lifeline Darling Downs & South West QLD in Toowoomba by supporting their annual Loads of Love Appeal.
Heritage are not only a financial sponsor of the Loads of Love Appeal, but more importantly, we make our branches available as collection points. This means people can go into a Heritage branch, pick up a Loads of Love bag and then drop it back to the branch when they’ve filled it with their donations.
Every year we are overwhelmed by the generosity of our staff and members in supporting campaigns like Loads of Love.
You can join us to provide a helping hand to those in the community who need it most during the Christmas season.
What should I give?
Here is a list of non-perishable shopping items that will make sure your support will make an impact.
Note: No fresh food or toys. Please ensure all non-perishable food is in original packaging so recipients can check ingredients in case of allergies and intolerances.
How will the food get distributed?
These donations will be distributed through community service organisations to families in need throughout Southern Queensland.
