So many of you generously responded to our requests for gifts with warmth and kindness.
This has helped us raise vital funds for the year ahead to help people move from crisis to stability.
In the lead-up to Christmas, we helped a Hobart woman who reached out to our emergency relief service for the first time.
A single mother of 2 young children who both have a disability, the woman was distressed when she spoke to our team.
She had just received a large vet bill after the family dog became ill, followed by her quarterly power bill.
The young family were struggling to get by, with perpetual medical costs and a recent rental increase.
The money she had put aside for Christmas presents needed to be used to pay the vet bill.
Thanks to your generosity and compassion, we were able to help this family with a food hamper and vouchers to buy Christmas gifts.
We were only able to do this thanks to your wonderful support.
