Gifts For Families.

After another difficult year, many of us are looking forward to celebrating Christmas. But for families struggling to get by, there won’t be much joy this Christmas.

Your donation goes directly to Uniting in East Melbourne Christmas Gifts For Families program.

Gifts For Families - Eastern Melbourne.

We have seen a significant increase in people accessing our emergency food services throughout the year, so we anticipate the need for Christmas support will be greater than previous years.

Last year we were overwhelmed with requests for assistance and unfortunately, we weren’t able to help everyone. This year it is our goal to assist every family in need so that no child will go without a gift this Christmas.
