How your generosity helps
One in eight Australians are living in poverty, with one in six children affected. So a Christmas morning without presents under the Christmas tree is a sad reality facing many families this year.
The 2016 Christmas Appeal aims to raise $1.5 million and collect as many gifts as possible! All money raised will enable UnitingCare to provide assistance with Christmas gifts, food, shelter and crisis support over the Christmas period.
There is a local UnitingCare representative for every Target store. All donated gifts stay in the local area and generous donations made at the registers are distributed throughout the State to where it’s needed most. Donated gifts are collected regularly by the UnitingCare representatives and money is also transferred quickly to ensure that help can be given to those in need well before Christmas Day.
