The recent widespread flooding in Queensland has dramatically affected the lives of thousands of ordinary families across that state.
The re-building process has begun for those families and apart from the enormous labour task it is certain to be a massive financial burden.
APP (Aussie Duct) has joined forces with a number of the Electrical Industry's leading names to make a sizeable contribution to the victims of the floods.
Through employee donations matched by companies, percentage of sales donations and cash sums, an approximate total of $1 000 000 will be donated by the group.
This co-ordinated approach is unprecedented in the Australian electrical industry, with funds raised going towards the clean up and repair of more than 30 000 flood affected homes and businesses in the area.
