Christmas Hamper Drive 2021

Christmas Hamper Drive 2021

Mackay Women’s Services is teaming up with Star 101.9 to help deliver some cheer with our Christmas Hamper Drive 2021

If you want to help support vunerable families this Christmas you can do so by putting together a hamper of goodies to donate to our service.

Businesses, schools and individuals can donate food, vouchers, toys and gifts to help bring some Christmas cheer to our families at the centre who are struggling this year.

There are two ways you can help:

⦁ Your business and/or staff, can collect food items, food/fuel vouchers, toiletries, gifts for mothers and their children, which will then be made into hampers for families in need.
⦁ Adopt a Family: – We can provide you information on a family needing support at Christmas, and you can purchase the whole hamper including food and gifts for one or more families.

We are starting early this year and hope to have everything handed our clients by the 17th December. We are also able to pick up your collections, if you are unable to deliver.

Some examples of what to include in the hamper:

Long life milk, pasta and pasta sauce, 2-Minute Noodles, biscuits, Christmas Bon Bons, custard, jelly, pudding or cake, tinned fruit, tinned vegetables, tuna, taco kit, lollies, crisps, tea and sugar, plus toys for small kids but also teenagers and mums (as we don’t always get as many donations for them).

If you are able to assist in any way please phone Julie on 07 4953 1788 or email julie@mkywc.org.au
