Let’s Give Everyone a Christmas 2015

lets give Xmas everyone bannerChristmas is a time of celebration. Many of us spend it with family or friends, enjoying a bit of an ‘end of year’ break of some sort or another. Some of us do not.

Our appeal “Let’s Give everyone a Christmas” is on the way again.  We expect to be supporting more than 2000 people this Christmas.  We provide food, toys for young children, and movie ticket packs for teenagers. Our target is to collect $70,000 in time for Christmas this year. That is an enormous task, and one which can only be achieved with the generosity of the Canberra community.  Thank you.

I’m proud to be patron of this appeal because it means everyone can celebrate the good things in life.  Every bit of support makes a difference for a person whose life is difficult at the moment.

  • Financial donations can be made by direct bank transfer: click here to find out more. Gifts of $2 and over are tax deductible.
  • New gifts can be left at our building, or at a number of other locations. Click here to see the list. We always receive generous donations of small gifts and soft toys and would love to add more brightly coloured and educational toys for children aged 0 – 12 to the options.
  • Donations of non-perishable food can be brought to the Kippax Uniting Community Centre, Luke St Holt.    If you would like to donate a hamper – here is the shopping list we’d invite you to use and bring the full hamper in to Kippax
  • Volunteering your time – especially helping at the time we are distributing the Christmas assistance, from 14-22 December – is not only helpful, but can be very rewarding.   Email us kuc@kippax.org.au if you are interested in this.

Thank you again for supporting this appeal. If you have any questions please call 6254 1733.  For more details on how to help, click here.

If you need help this Christmas, hamper bookings open on Monday 1st December at 9.00am. Call 6254 1733.

It is important that people book into and attend appointments so that we are able to provide them with the best possible service this Christmas, and so that others do not miss out.
