Community members looking for extra support this festive season can register with a selection of local charities to receive a Christmas hamper.
Created from funds raised as part of the Mayor’s Christmas Cheer Appeal, Christmas hampers offer a selection of food for those in need of a helping hand over the holidays.
To date this year, the appeal has raised over $35,000, with the aim of raising $50,000 to fund the provision of 500 hampers.
Local charities Citicoast Pantry Bundaberg, the Salvation Army and St. Vincent de Paul’s Childers have joined the Gin Gin and Childers Neighbourhood Centres to register families and distribute hampers.
Community members can nominate themselves or other families by either contacting the participating charities directly or by downloading or collecting a form and submitting it to the Childers or Gin Gin Neighbourhood Centre.
