HOME IN ON DONATIONS
ONLY days remain until this year’s Salvos Christmas Appeal, and the Real Estate Institute of WA is encouraging people to make a last- minute donation.
The Salvos Christmas Appeal is all about bringing some festive cheer to anyone homeless in WA this season.
REIWA president Hayden Groves said there were a number of ways people could get behind the appeal. 175g ( 1 ½ cups) raspberries 35g ( ¼ cup) shelled pistachios, chopped DQ Real Estate, Woodvale North Shopping Centre, Woodvale First National Real Estate Druitt & Shead, 193A Scarborough Beach Road, Doubleview O'Rourke Realty Investments, 62 Scarborough Beach Road, Scarborough
“You can donate unwrapped gifts or non- perishable food items to one of the designated REIWA agency collection points near you,” he said. “Alternatively, you can visit the Salvos website to make a monetary donation.”

“Christmas can be a really tough time for those sleeping rough on our streets. We’ve seen time and time again how generous West Aussies can be, so I’d love to see the community come together and make this appeal the biggest and best yet,” Mr Groves said.
“The Salvos need gifts to suit all age groups, so any item will be put to good use.”
Gifts can also be dropped at REIWA’s headquarters at 215 Hay Street, Subiaco.
REIWA staff members will collect donations from the drop- off points on Monday in time for Christmas. 1.
