How You Can Help The Needy This Christmas

Perth CBD (98)      Christmas (72)     
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.

K-Mart Wishing Tree Appeal
K-Mart’s Wishing Tree Appeal has been running since 1988 as a means for disadvantaged kids and families to receive a gift at Christmas time. It is run in conjunction with Mission Australia and the Salvation Army. To contribute, you can give a gift or money in store or make an online contribution.

Foodbank WA
There’s only a few days left before Christmas and before Foodbank’s Give A Feed program ends before the big day. You can Give A Feed as a gift or donate non-perishable food items into the Giving Boxes at Perth’s shopping centres. For a list of the places you can drop food, click here. Donations can be made throughout Christmas and into the new year.

Donate a toy or gift through the Smith Family
Every year the Smith Family helps children in need by donating gift packs. You can help by purchasing a gift pack online. With gifts ranging in price starting from $25, there’s lots of packs to choose from to suit all budgets. You can also make a monetary donation online.

Website: To help and for more information, see the website.

Even the smallest donation could make a big difference to Perth families this year, so open your purses and help out those who need it most.
