Vin­nies Christ­mas Ap­peal is un­der way

Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - NEWS -

THE Caloun­dra Com­mu­nity Bank Branch of Bendigo Bank has do­nated $1000 to kick­start the 2018 St Vin­cent De Paul Christ­mas Ap­peal giv­ing those in need some­thing to look for­ward to this Christ­mas.

The donation will help Vin­nie’s with the pur­chase of food items which are pre­sented as Christ­mas ham­pers and de­liv­ered to the Caloun­dra el­derly and needy over the com­ing fes­tive sea­son.

Caloun­dra Com­mu­nity Bank Branch chair­man Colin Rose said the branch ac­knowl­edges Christ­mas can bring both joy and sad­ness for fam­i­lies as they come to terms with their sit­u­a­tion.

“We have been long-time sup­port­ers of St Vin­cent de Paul be­cause we see first-hand the tough times many peo­ple in our com­mu­nity en­dure ei­ther through lone­li­ness or fi­nan­cial hard­ship.”

Col­lec­tion bins for non-per­ish­able ham­per prod­ucts are at the St Vin­cent De Paul Char­ity Shop (16 Mayes Av­enue), Caloun­dra Com­mu­nity Bank Branch (99 Bul­cock Street) and at the IGA Vil­lage Shop­ping Cen­tre.
