Once again this year Picabeen Community Centre is looking for help to provide Christmas hampers to the growing number of local people experiencing hardship.
The centre has been supporting at least 40 families and other vulnerable people with those hampers, but in the last two years, the numbers had grown to over 50 families.
People, groups or households who want to be part of this program can drop their donation at the centre. For businesses who would like to help, a crate can be dropped off at your premises, or you can use your own. Picabeen can only accept non-perishable food and Christmas treats.
People do not need a red suit to bring happiness at Christmas and if you made a contribution last year you would know how meaningful your actions were to the families and community members.
The centre is at 22 Hoben St, Mitchelton. Phone 3354 2555 or email email@example.com for information.
