Each year we conduct a Christmas Appeal to help us pay for our Christmas program and to provide funds to help us meet the cost of our weekly emergency food aid program in the coming year. Last Christmas we were able to provide 511 Christmas hampers and toys for 505 children. Again, last Christmas we donated 110 hampers to assist with Westernport’s Christmas program.
For 2017 we set our target at $55,000. We received cash donations totalling $53,866. Although a little short of our target the overall result was very pleasing because we had early setbacks when two of our usual major fundraisers were marred by heavy rain. Our community was also most generous with donations of food, toys and gifts. Funds remaining after paying for the Christmas program will enable us to purchase food well into 2018.
Sincere thanks from the “Food For All” team to everyone who participated in the appeal.
