Hampers help the needy
Youth Action Exmouth is calling on the community to support its Community Christmas Hamper Appeal and help make the festive season brighter for families in need.
After a successful hamper drive last year, YAE hopes to assist even more families this year and is seeking donations of non-perishable food items such as meal bases, pasta, rice, biscuits, long-life milk and custards, Christmas cake and pudding, cereal, biscuits and toiletries to fill Christmas hampers.
Donations will be packaged and delivered to the Exmouth Community Support Group to distribute to families experiencing personal or financial hardship.
YAE member Bronte Barnes said the Community Christmas Hamper Appeal was a chance for them to give something back to the community and help those that were facing hardship.
“We love Exmouth and the families that surround it, which is why we are helping to create these hampers,” she said.
Fellow YAE member Hayden Mumby said the group wanted people to enjoy a good thing and not have to focus on the bad things in life.
BHP Billiton Australia operations manager Clive Jones said he was inspired by the enthusiasm, commitment and compassion of the YAE team.
He said BHP was proud to support the YAE program.
