CHRISTMAS HAMPERS FOR FAMILIES IN NEED
One of the charities I support through this project is Perth StreetDoctor, who care for the marginalised, transient & disadvantaged populations of Perth.
Christmas is a time that places a lot of shame and embarrassment on them, where the pressure of being unable to provide for their families reaches an all-time high.
As such rates of self-harm and suicide also increase.
With the aim to inject a small amount of hope and comfort into some of our WA families and hopefully release just a tiny amount of pressure on them, I am kicking off a collection for items to make as many Christmas Hampers as possible for these families, so they have food to make a meal to enjoy together on Christmas Eve & Christmas Day at the very least, as well as a small surplus to see them through the weeks after.
All items must be non-perishable and all cans must be ring pull.
Some suggestions are;
Long Life Custard
Long life Milk
Canned Fish (Tuna, Salmon)
Dried herbs & spices
Fruit (canned or dried)
Instant Mashed Potato
Meals in a box
Chocolate Christmas stockings
Chocolate wafer sticks
Cash donations also welcome, as I have arranged with a butcher and a fruit & veg market to purchase gift vouchers, which the families can use to buy a meat pack and some fresh produce for Christmas Eve & Day. Please note that donations are not tax deductible. I am not a registered charity, I am just one person trying to make a difference to the lives of others.
Drop off locations are in Heathridge, Wanneroo, Wangara and Kensington. If you'd like to make a cash donation, please email me.
Collection closes 1 December.
Thank you for helping me to help others.
