In the true spirit of Christ­mas, Tar­get and Unit­ingCare Aus­tralia are join­ing to­gether to im­prove the lives of thou­sands of Aus­tralians strug­gling dur­ing this fes­tive sea­son.

Funds raised from their an­nual Christ­mas Ap­peal will help the Unit­ingCare Net­work to sup­port its com­mu­nity ser­vices and pro­grams na­tion­wide.

Now in its 27th year, the Ap­peal has helped hun­dreds of thou­sands of fam­i­lies across Aus­tralia.

It is easy to con­trib­ute in Tar­get stores across Vic­to­ria in­clud­ing Yar­ra­wonga and Tas­ma­nia by sim­ply pur­chas­ing an ap­peal bauble for $2, a white Christ­mas gift box for $3 or giv­ing an un­wrapped gift at your lo­cal Tar­get store.

Vol­un­teers from the Unit­ingCare Net­work will col­lect do­na­tions and dis­trib­ute them to peo­ple and fam­i­lies in need.

Unit­ing Vol­un­teer Rev. Richard Franklin said “The team at Unit­ing is thrilled to play even a small part in such an im­por­tant com­mu­nity cam­paign and en­cour­age shop­pers to do­nate as much or as lit­tle as they can.”

In 2017, the ap­peal raised $700,000 na­tion­wide from over 22,000 do­na­tions, help­ing sup­port over 42,000 Aus­tralian fam­i­lies.

This year, or­gan­is­ers hope to reach more peo­ple who will strug­gle this Christ­mas thanks to the gen­er­ous sup­port from all Aus­tralians.

The Tar­get Unit­ingCare Aus­tralia Christ- mas Ap­peal runs from Novem­ber 1 un­til De­cem­ber 24.

Tar­get Yar­ra­wonga is lo­cated at 154 Bel­more Street to make do­na­tions.
