Christmas is a joyous occasion for many; but for some, it can be the hardest time of the year. In the spirit of giving and being a blessing, we ran our annual Christmas hampers program with the goal of generously blessing families who are doing it tough financially with a hamper around the Christmas period. The hampers were lovingly packed by our volunteers and consist of food, home necessities and some Christmas treats and presents.
This year we collected and donated a total of 39 hampers! The recipients of the hampers were referred to us by their social workers from Disability Services, Inala Youth Service and Vietnamese Community Association. A few recipients of the hampers came into contact with us through self-referral. We received positive feedback from the families and social workers that the hampers have been very much appreciated, especially around the Christmas season.
