The Queensland and Victorian floods have devistated the livelihood of thousands of Australians. Estimates for rebuilding flood affected Victoria and Queensland run into the billions. Such a huge catastrophic event often seems beyond the reach of people to comprehend, much less to offer assistance. Students at Georgetown are raising money to help the victims of the Queensland and Victoria floods.
Today, Australia Day, commemorates the landing of the First Fleet at Sydney Cove in 1788. To mark this day a group of students are selling ANZAC biscuits for a dollar each. The proceeds go to help victims of the floods.
What are ANZAC biscuits? In American parlance they are oatmeal and coconut cookies, made with golden syrup instead of sugar. They are typically not soft and chewy, but great to dunk in a cup of coffee. Stop by the foyer at the Levy Center today and taste a little bit of Australian culture, while contributing to a good cause.
