"You walk away from those communities wanting to do more," he said.
Having been personally affected by the Brisbane floods of 2011, Meninga knows how hard it can be and how it can bring a community together.
“It can galvanise a community, the spirit of everyone is there to support you and help you get through it,” he said.
CEO, Mitchell expanded on how the Titans club has gotten behind the rebuild by moving funds intended for the Club's Season Launch and donating a portion of ticket sales at the first home game of the year.
"This is our heartland and one of our major communities," Mitchell said.
"We moved fairly quickly. We cancelled our Season Launch and we moved the cost base of that across to a fund that will help the junior participation piece.
"Then for our home game last week, $10 from every ticket sold to the Warriors game went to the flood appeal and that will come through BizRebuild.
"Speaking to business people here tonight their situation is just so dire, so BizRebuild will help them get back on their feet.
"And also, GIVIT, is a charity that will help Mums and Dads at home, which we will also contribute to.
"We had Village Roadshow Theme Parks join the ticket donation effort also, so the sum total went to $20 per ticket on that program."
