For most West Australians, Christmas is a time of joy and family, but for some people, it is a time of loneliness, homelessness or when budgets are stretched to the absolute maximum. If you’ve been thinking of helping the needy this festive season, here are some ways in which you might be able to help.

Christmas Lunch in the Park – Mission Australia
Mission Australia will host the 2016 Christmas Lunch in the Park at Wellington Square on Christmas Day. Volunteer positions for wrapping presents, set up and pack up are still available, so if you can spare some time, please register online. Alternatively, if your Christmas Day schedule is full, you can make an online donation to buy someone lunch for just $20.

Date: Sunday, 25th December from 11am.
Address: Wellington Square, East Perth.

Make an online donation through Mission Australia
Sadly, a number of Perth families will face homelessness this Christmas. Every year Mission Australia helps thousands of people in need with food, accommodation, clothing and goods. You can make a one-off donation to help those in need.
