How you can help bring cheer to fam­i­lies

Maroochy Weekly - - NEWS -

WHILE Christ­mas is a joy­ful time for many, it can also be a time of great ad­ver­sity.

The re­al­ity is that a num­ber of fam­i­lies across the Coast are strug­gling fi­nan­cially and the fes­tive sea­son is a re­minder of how tough times are.

To help re­lieve some of this strain and bring some much-needed cheer to fam­i­lies in need, the

Sun­shine Coast Daily is launch­ing its Adopt-a-Fam­ily ap­peal with the help of Coast char­i­ties.

The ap­peal en­cour­ages peo­ple to put to­gether ham­pers con­tain­ing non-per­ish­able foods, bon-bons, vouch­ers and chil­dren’s toys so fam­i­lies in need can still en­joy the fes­tive sea­son.

St Vin­cent de Paul Kawana’s Terry Sharry said by work­ing to­gether with the Daily and fel­low char­i­ties, they were able to have a wider reach and help as many fam­i­lies as pos­si­ble.
