Help us make a difference in our community at Christmas
Every Christmas, many people in our community experience financial hardship or social isolation, and find themselves struggling to make ends meet and to cope with varying levels of distress, due to factors such as redundancy, broken relationships and loneliness.
Help us give a Christmas to local families who are struggling
Christmas, our traditional time of joy and celebration, can be a time of heartbreak for many.
Lifeline Harbor to Hawkesbury’s annual Christmas Hamper Appeal is a means of ‘giving a Christmas’ to families who are struggling to make ends meet. You can help this important initiative by creating or contributing to a Christmas Hamper for a family in need.
Donations – what we need most
Our Christmas Hamper Appeal coordinators always need more donations in the form of foodstuffs, gifts for adults, or financial help.
Want to donate something but stuck for ideas? We are always happy to accept cash donations (it’s easy to pay using the green button at the bottom of this page), but if you would prefer to give something more material, our appeal coordinators can always use more of the following:
- Tinned ham
- Pasta and pasta sauce
- Assorted sweets
- Potato crisps
- Festive biscuits
- Long-life custard
- Tinned salmon/tuna
- Christmas pudding/cake.
We also accept gifts for all ages (our main target group being adults), including:
- Gift vouchers
- and new (not recycled) CDs and DVDs
Please do not include any food items that contain alcohol, and please ensure that all food items are within their Use By date.
Where to drop off your donations
In the run-up to Christmas, donations can be dropped off at our Lifeline centre at 4 Park Avenue, Gordon by Tuesday 17 December; or you can call 9498 8805 if you would like more information. Cash donations, which go directly towards the hamper project, can be made by either using the donation button below, or you can call us and make a donation over the phone.
We thank you for your kindness and generosity!
Help us make a difference this coming Christmas
The feedback that we receive from hamper recipients is always heart-warming. It really can make a difference to them on Christmas Day, and reminds them that their community cares about them.
Every donation to Lifeline makes a difference!
