Griffith Council Launches Christmas Giving Tree Appeal
Residents are urged to help make Christmas brighter for those doing it tough by donating a small gift at the Giving Tree.
Griffith City Council has launched a facility-wide Christmas Giving Tree Appeal.
The appeal aims to create a brighter Christmas for locals experiencing hardship or crisis, through the delivery of gifts.
LED Christmas trees will be placed in the foyer of the Council’s administration building, Griffith City Library, Griffith Regional Theatre and the Tourism Hub.
Griffith Mayor, Doug Curran urged the community to share in the spirit of Christmas and donate to the less fortunate.
“For a lot of people Christmas can be an especially tough time,” he said.
“Even the smallest gift can help make the season a little better.” Donations can be made until Friday, December 15.
The gifts will be given to Griffith Hampers of Hope for distribution to families in need the week before Christmas.
Residents can also donate to two other Hampers of Hope Programs.
The Food and Toy run will be held on the first Saturday in December.
Food and toys will be collected and delivered to a number of charities and groups in the area.
Santa for a Senior asks people to donate gifts for older citizens such as clients of Meals on Wheels and residents of nursing homes to be delivered the week of Christmas.
