Bumper donations for Christmas
AS we start a new year and make plans for the months ahead, we like to look back at the successes of the previous 12 months. A highlight was the Southcare Christmas Appeal.
We were overwhelmed by the wonderful support we received. Donations of gifts to the Giving Box Appeal, co-ordinated by Uniting Care and Target stores and distributed by Southcare in our area, meant everyone who was invited to our Christmas gift and hamper days went away with a huge smile.
Collection points for donations of food items for our hamper appeal were also very successful this year, with local schools, service organisations, businesses, the City of South Perth and private individuals contributing, ensuring many families had something to enjoy over Christmas.
With so many other organisations also calling for support, your generosity to Southcare’s annual appeal was amazing.
Watching the faces of children as they explored the displays of toys, books and games from which they could choose their gift, was one of the highlights of the year.
Handing out bulging hampers that included a wide selection of nourishing food and a few treats really made us feel like Santa.
