Golden gifts help those less for­tu­nate

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Christmas -

HAWAI­IAN, Food­bank WA and Angli­care WA have com­bined for the third year to col­lect and dis­trib­ute food and presents to peo­ple in need this Christ­mas and in to the New Year.

The Gold Giv­ing Boxes pro­gram that runs at sev­eral Hawai­ian prop­er­ties re­ceived enough do­na­tions last year to help more than 7000 peo­ple in need over the fes­tive sea­son.

This year, schools can get in­volved in the Gold Giv­ing Box School Pro­gram that en­cour­ages stu­dents to con­sider and dis­cuss why giv­ing is so im­por­tant, through an art ac­tiv­ity.

Hawai­ian chief ex­ec­u­tive Rus­sell Gibbs said last year’s do­na­tions made a dif­fer­ence to many lives and they wanted to take the mes­sage fur­ther through ini­tia­tives such as the school pro­gram.

Gold Giv­ing Boxes are open un­til De­cem­ber 24 when do­na­tions will be dis­trib­uted to Food­bank WA and Angli­care WA.
