The 25th anniversary year was one of the biggest yet for our Food for Families appeal. We’re so excited to announce that an incredible 47 tonnes of food and toiletry items were donated! What an amazing effort Melbourne!
Thank you so much to everyone – schools, workplaces, community organisations and individuals – who filled more than 3,000 boxes and bags to the brim with non-perishable groceries and household items to help families in need. Not to mention the 235 dedicated volunteers who drove across Melbourne collecting donations, and sorted and stacked food at our Crisis and Homelessness Services.
The spirit of giving across Melbourne at Christmas time was truly amazing. Thank you so much again to everyone who gave so much to help those in need.
