Christmas Hamper Drive 2022

Christmas Hamper Drive 2022

Mackay Women’s Services is teaming up with Star 101.9 to help deliver some cheer with our Christmas Hamper Drive 2022

If you want to help support vulnerable families, this Christmas you can do so by putting together a food hamper for Christmas Day of goodies and gifts for family member to donate to our service.

This year we are encouraging businesses, schools and individuals to donate a hamper of food for Christmas day and focus on gifts for older children 13+. With the current price increase in fuel and food, we would also encourage community to donate vouchers of either food, fuel or gift vouchers for presents to 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 older children (13+), 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 12th December. We are also able to pick up your collections, if you are unable to deliver.

Some examples of what to include in the Christmas Day Food Hamper:

Jams, biscuits, Christmas Bon Bons, custard, jelly, pudding or cake, tinned fruit, lollies, crisps, coffee/tea and sugar, plus gifts/vouchers for older children and mothers (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
