Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

EV­ERY Christ­mas the

Whit­sun­day Times runs an adopt-a-fam­ily ap­peal.

For those who would like to do some­thing to help oth­ers in need this Christ­mas, this is a chance to help strug­gling Whit­sun­day fam­i­lies or in­di­vid­u­als with a gift ham­per.

The ham­per can be stocked with toys, gifts, non-per­ish­able food and any other items that put a smile on the faces of those less for­tu­nate.

The Whit­sun­day

Times has had a great re­sponse in pre­vi­ous years for the adopt-a-fam­ily ap­peal, as­sist­ing 89 fam­i­lies last year.

To ben­e­fit from the ap­peal fam­i­lies and in­di­vid­u­als must be reg­is­tered with com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions.

Next week, the Times will pub­lish more in­for­ma­tion about the ap­peal, in­clud­ing a list of fam­i­lies to be adopted.

For more in­for­ma­tion con­tact Kel­lie Chart on 4940 2105.
