Christmas Season Is The Season of Giving

Christmas is all about giving not just to the people that are special to us but also to those people that need a helping hand. There are people that are less fortunate that could use a lending hand, and may this season spark the spirit of generosity and giving in our hearts. Over the next few days, spare a thought and lend a helping hand to the children and families in need at this time of year. You can donate all kinds of children’s items such as clothing, soft toys, books for education and entertainment, and board games to name a few.

This month, the Reduce team has donated over $200 worth of books, games and toys to Anglicare SQ to distribute to young children missing the joys and surprises of Christmas. Anglicare works with the community and with over 2800 workforce, Anglicare aims to contribute to a society where all people can live their lives in fullness and hope. Check out Anglicare’s advocacy campaigns & projects and donate or be a volunteer.
