The Mullumbimby Rotary Club has raised $20,000 to help locals impacted by the floods.
The Club is using the money to offer grants of $500 on a needs basis to residents and business owners from the 2482 and 2483 postcodes.
‘To make the selection process as fair and equitable as possible, our Club is calling for applications from flood-affected people and businesses in the local area,’ the president of the Rotary Club, Rosetta Smiriglia said.
‘So many lives were dramatically changed during the floods of February 28 and March 31 and we want to help support the rebuilding effort.
‘It’s not much, but it will help people get a new washing machine or a fridge or get something for the kids.
The club has already given away over $6,000 in gift vouchers and organised several free community barbeques.
Applications close on May 30, 2022.
