Home in on do­na­tions

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - 2016 YOUR GUIDE TO CHRISTMAS -

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.

“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.”

Mr Groves said ev­ery con­tri­bu­tion would make a dif­fer­ence to the home­less over the hol­i­day pe­riod.

“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.
