Gifts for Families. Thanks to you.

For many years, generous Victorians and Tasmanians have collected brand new gifts so parents and carers can come in and choose something special for their children and families at Christmas time.

This year, due to COVID-19, we have opted to add another way to donate that allows for non-contact giving.

How to participate

There are 2 ways to ensure no family will go without a gift this Christmas.

You can donate gifts in person

Check with your local Uniting site if they are running a gift appeal. We’ll have COVID-safe arrangements for drop-offs and for the distribution of gifts.

Donate online

Some sites are accepting online donations. With your online donation we’ll purchase gift vouchers and distribute them to parents and carers who can use the vouchers to choose a toy or other gift - or their children can enjoy shopping themselves.

Donate online to the local ABC Giving Tree appeal in Tasmania:

In Tasmania Uniting partners with Tasmania’s biggest Christmas appeal, the ABC Giving Tree.

Through online donations received from the Giving Tree, we purchase gifts and gift vouchers to distribute to vulnerable Tasmanian families.

We hope you, your group, school, workplace or family can support Gifts For Families and help us make sure there are gifts under every Christmas tree in our communities.
