Compassionate acts of a Queensland Freemason

Every Wednesday afternoon, rain, hail, or shine, Bro Mark McDonnell is at West End providing food to the less fortunate.

His charity initiative, Community Friends organises donations from local suppliers so that people in need know they always have a dependable place to get a meal every week.

This includes people living rough, in their cars or in temporary shelters, as well as homeless people with nowhere to live.

On visiting Mark last month there were individuals from all walks of life in attendance and sadly, even children.

Last week Freemasons Queensland donated over a dozen large boxes of cutlery, cups and plates for Mark to distribute. These basic items were readily accepted by the local homeless refuge in Brisbane.
Mark was initiated into Prince Albert Lodge 248 in August this year. He is looking forward to his Masonic journey and building new friendships.
Read more about Mark, his masonic journey and his charity work in the December issue of the Queensland Freemason magazine.
