Burke Shire Flooding Event Donations

Council have been overwhelmed (in a positive way!) from the support of people outside the Burke Shire Community who have offered donations, their time, equipment etc. to help support the Burke Community. Due to the flooding there are a number of factors that need to be considered including airport capabilities, road openings and accommodation avaliability, before we can accept some of the support that has been offered. 

If you would like to express your interest in supporting the Burke Shire Community please contact 

Shannon Moren - smoren@burke.qld.gov.au or Kimberly Chan kchan@burke.qld.gov.au
