MEALS on Wheels clients can rest assured that their meals will arrive at the perfect temperature after the service received a donation of much-needed equipment.

Citizens Who Care and Sir Augustus Freemasons Lodge of Queensland have both donated $1000 towards the service to buy 33 new food-grade cooler boxes.

Rob Bauer, from Citizens Who Care, said the donation would enable the service to continue to meet its strict health requirements.

"Meals on Wheels uses eskies every day and the ones they had were getting a bit worn out," he said.

Mr Bauer said Citizens Who Care were always happy to help Meals on Wheels, which did "amazing" things for the community.

"We are always happy to help those who help make life easier for people in need," Mr Bauer said.

Citizens Who Care and Sir Augustus Freemasons Lodge of Queensland have combined to donate another $2000 to the Sunshine Coast Rescue Helicopter's Bundaberg base for the purchase of an operational and promotional computer.
