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.
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 one of these local appeals in Victoria:
We’ll ensure that gift vouchers go to disadvantaged families in local communities across Victoria where they are needed most.
If your local area isn’t listed, here are some other ways you can support Uniting this Christmas.
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.
