Christmas morning without presents under the tree is a sad reality facing many local families this year. UnitingSA is hoping to make a difference to these families experiencing financial hardship through our annual Christmas Appeal.
Together, we hope to raise vital funds to ensure over 600 families can enjoy a meal on Christmas Day and discover presents under their tree.
Every gift, no matter how large or small, has the power to create positive change in our community.
Who does the appeal help?
- All monetary donations are distributed to those in need in the form of gift vouchers, so that food items can be purchased for Christmas day. Many recipients are families in crisis, teenagers experiencing homelessness and older people who are financially disadvantaged.
- Gifts are donated to families in need during the weeks leading up to Christmas.
Donate at a Target store.
Target stores in Whyalla, Fulham Gardens and West Lakes support UnitingSA’s Christmas Appeal. You can pop a gift under their Christmas tree for a child in need or donate at the check-out.
