Packs to bring smiles

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO CHRISTMAS -

PREMIER Brands Out­let man­ager Deb­bie and her team are em­brac­ing the sea­son of giv­ing as they gather do­na­tions for those most in need this Christ­mas.

The Minchinbury store has put up its own giv­ing tree, ask­ing cus­tomers to do­nate non-per­ish­able goods, which will be made into ham­pers.

Deb­bie has se­lected two un­sus­pect­ing fam­i­lies from the re­gion to ben­e­fit from the do­na­tion drive – a grand­mother who has stepped up to help raise her grand­daugh­ters af­ter their mother’s death, and a mum of two boys bat­tling can­cer while her hus­band takes on a sec­ond job.

She has also been tak­ing do­na­tions to go to­wards the chil­dren who are part of the Break­ing Bar­ri­ers Fit­ness Pro­gram, which sup­ports atrisk in­dige­nous youth.

Deb­bie said she had been over­whelmed with sup­port.

“The gen­eros­ity of peo­ple here is amaz­ing,” she said.

The shop is at 40 Arch­bold Rd, Minchinbury.

De­tails: 8887 7900.

Bianca and Deb­bie are get­ting into the spirit of Christ­mas, and are en­cour­ag­ing cus­tomers to help put to­gether ham­pers for de­serv­ing res­i­dents.
