Giv­ing tree donors help needy fam­i­lies

The Coffs Coast Advocate - - NEWS -

TAR­GET and Unit­ingCare Aus­tralia are aim­ing to raise funds to im­prove the lives of thou­sands of Aus­tralians through their Christ­mas Ap­peal.

Through the gen­eros­ity of Aus­tralians, or­gan­is­ers hope to raise $1.5 mil­lion to sup­port the thou­sands of com­mu­nity ser­vices and pro­grams de­liv­ered across the Unit­ing Net­work.

A few dol­lars could help women and chil­dren flee­ing do­mes­tic vi­o­lence, peo­ple seek­ing emer­gency re­lief or chil­dren and fam­i­lies in des­per­ate sit­u­a­tions.

Tar­get and Unit­ingCare Aus­tralia have made it easy to con­trib­ute by sim­ply buy­ing an ap­peal bauble for $1 or giv­ing an un­wrapped gift at their lo­cal Tar­get store.

In 2016 the ap­peal raised more than $1.2m and helped sup­port more than 45,000 Aus­tralian fam­i­lies. De­tails unit­ing­carechrist­mas ap­peal.eom.au/.
