Bendigo Bank War­ragul Christ­mas Char­i­ties

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - COUNCIL NEWS -

The Bendigo Bank War­ragul, lo­cated at 45 Smith Street, is par­tic­i­pat­ing in two ini­tia­tives that will help many in our com­mu­nity en­joy this Christ­mas sea­son.

The branch shares Bendigo Bank’s ethos of in­vest­ing in the needs of our com­mu­nity and over the past 20 years Bendigo Bank through its Com­mu­nity Ini­tia­tives have re­turned over $205m to Aus­tralian com­mu­ni­ties.

They are pleased to be sup­port­ing both the Baw Baw Com­bined Churches Food Re­lief and St Vin­cent De Paul char­i­ties in their ef­forts this Christ­mas.

Their first ini­tia­tive is lo­cated in the en­try of the branch.

The shop­ping trolley is a col­lec­tion point for the Baw Baw Com­bined Churches Food Re­lief where you can de­posit pack­aged and dry food prod­ucts for distri­bu­tion amongst our district.

The se­cond ini­tia­tive is the Santa Sleigh in the branch which is a col­lec­tion point where you can de­posit a wrapped gift de­signed for chil­dren and youth up to age 18, which will be col­lected and dis­trib­uted by St Vin­nies.

David and the team from Bendigo Bank War­ragul are pleased to be par­tic­i­pat­ing with these char­i­ties and en­cour­age ev­ery­one to drop some­thing off to en­sure that as many fam­i­lies as pos­si­ble can en­joy this Christ­mas sea­son.
