COM­MU­NI­CARE is ap­peal­ing to busi­nesses, ser­vice clubs and church groups in the City of South Perth to help fam­i­lies this Christ­mas through its Christ­mas Ap­peal.

Com­mu­ni­care chief ex­ec­u­tive Melissa Perry said there was a 66 per cent in­crease in clients seek­ing presents, food vouch­ers and food ham­pers for Christ­mas last year and the num­ber was set to rise.

“We gave out more than 1200 presents, food vouch­ers and food ham­pers last year and helped more than 700 fam­i­lies (and) we be­lieve that more fam­i­lies will need help this year with ris­ing costs of util­ity bills, gro­ceries and rental pay­ments,” she said.
