For most children, Christmas is a time of fun and excitement as they enjoy holiday time with family and friends and eagerly await presents from Santa. Alternatively, for families doing it tough, Christmas can be a difficult reminder of financial and family problems. Help us bring some Christmas cheer to disadvantaged families this year by placing a gift under the Parklea Gift Drive trees.
Parklea Gift Drive
You can help by placing gifts for boys and girls ages 0-16 years under the trees located at Arena Shopping Centre and the Timbertop Estate Sales Suite. Donations will be accepted right up until Christmas. However, donations made earlier will be much appreciated.
All gifts will be donated to Windermere Child and Family Services and The 4C’s. Each year Windermere and The 4C’s assist thousands of people in the local community with food, housing, jobs, counselling and more.
Over the last two years of this appeal we have had a wonderful response with piles of gifts large and small donated by locals including an Xbox console. Maree De George of Windermere thanked residents for ‘a wonderful contribution by all, which will bring some Christmas joy to children and families in our community that would otherwise miss out.’ Parklea is anticipating an even bigger response this year with the addition of a Share your Christmas tree at Arena Shopping Centre.
Help Parklea, Windermere and The 4C’s make a difference and put a smile on a child’s face this Christmas.
