Parklea Gift Drive was a Merry success
For the 3rd year running Parklea held it’s annual Christmas Gift Drive for disadvantaged families and children.
2017’s Gift Drive was the most successful to date, as locals generously donated an abundance of gifts and toys.
Throughout December last year, large donation boxes located under the Arena Shopping Centre and Timbertop Estate Sales Suite Christmas tree’s, were consistently refilled with a variety of gifts.
The Parklea Gift Drive is a representation of community spirit and demonstrates the kindness and humanity evident within our Cardinia and Officer community.
All donations went to The 4C’s and Windermere Child and Family Services,
Each year The 4C’s and Windermere Child and Family Services help thousands of families across the Cardinia Shire with financial support, housing, job assistance, counselling, life skills training and connection to services.
Due to the overwhelming response from the community this year, extra gifts that were donated in late December have been given to the charities to distribute to children in need throughout 2018.
Parklea would like to thank everyone who donated towards the Gift Drive, we greatly appreciate all the support and generosity that the community has shown throughout the festive season. We look forward supporting various charities in the year ahead.
