Gifts For Families.

For many of us, Christmas is a joyous time filled with excitement. However, due to the rising cost of living many are experiencing hardship, making this time of year a stressful one. Families will struggle to afford gifts and provide their children with the Christmas they deserve.

Your donation goes directly to our Uniting Emergency Relief in Footscray's Christmas Gifts For Families program.

Gifts For Families - Footscray.

We have seen a significant increase in people accessing our 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. It is our goal to assist every family in need so that no child will go without a gift this Christmas.
