Please help peo­ple and fam­i­lies in cri­sis

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Western Opinion -

REG­U­LAR do­na­tions to Red Cross help to pro­vide a healthy break­fast for chil­dren who oth­er­wise go to school hun­gry and al­low us to make a daily phone call to check that el­derly or iso­lated peo­ple are all right.

De­spite our best ef­forts how­ever, there are new fam­i­lies that need our help each year, new com­mu­ni­ties that find them­selves in cri­sis, and a grow­ing num­ber of lonely, el­derly peo­ple who find them­selves cut off from friends and fam­ily.

At this time of the year, when the gen­eros­ity of all Aus­tralians shines through, I urge ev­ery­one to put a lit­tle some­thing aside for peo­ple and fam­i­lies in cri­sis.

To give to the Red Cross Fes­tive Ap­peal go to red­cross.org.au or tele­phone 1800 811 700.

Your gift will make a real dif­fer­ence this Christ­mas.
