We have requests for over 1,400 Christmas Gifts for vulnerable children across Melbourne this year.

It's not too late to donate.

We are still in need of just under 1,000 gifts.

The effort and care people have put into their donated gifts has blown me away!! I am so appreciative!! We are accepting gifts until Saturday 10th December, so there is still time. In past years, our final week brings the biggest haul and I hope this proves correct once again. We are currently sitting at 147 gifts. I'm confident we can crack 300 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

Daniella from Odyssey House picked up her request for 37 Christmas gifts for vulnerable children today.

Thank you to everyone who has donated so far.

We have over 300 Christmas gifts due to go out next week. With your help we will be able to fill all of our requests.

It's still not too late to donate 🎁🎄🎅

We had a visit from Santa's helper today.

Oliver came with his Santa sack full of gifts for our Christmas Gift Appeal. He brought smiles to our faces and warmed our hearts.

We look forward to seeing you again Oliver.

Thanks again 🎅🎄🎁
