Through its “Let’s Give” appeal UnitingCare Kippax distributes food hampers and new toys to around 650 families in need each Christmas. Here are few ways you as an individual or as a team from your organisation can help.
- Putting a giving tree in your workplace or making direct donations of new toys to us. We are anticipating a growth in need on previous years, so this is a practical and very direct way of helping. Any gift, no matter how small can and really does help, and is a key priority this year.
- Volunteering a couple of hours of your time between the 14th and 21st December to come in and be a “Volunteer Elf” giving out Christmas Hampers and Toys. This is an ideal opportunity for organisations who may want to send a small team for a fun half day.
- Participating in the Teenage Gift Drive. Being able to provide gifts for teenagers can be a real gap and we are happy to say that through the generosity of our community we have been able to provide movie gift packs to teenagers that allow them to share their gift with someone else. We’re really looking forward to continuing community support. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
