And what a busy weekend it’s been for Citipointe Church (Wecker Rd, Carindale). They have been doing a brilliant job getting volunteers and resources together, setting up hubs and getting their hands dirty. To highlight some of their great leadership, here are some of their tweets from the last 48 hours:

Police stopping the traffic and army trucks to let citipointe volunteers pass!! “anything for the citipointe guys” they are saying!!!
Streets without power need generators and gurneys to clean. Bring them if you can. Hubs at Graceville, Sherwood, Fairfield and West End.
There are heaps of locals doing fantastic things to help with the flood relief effort. We welcome you to share your stories with us as well as any upcoming initiatives so we can help others to be involved.
