Christmas Appeal

‘CHRISTMAS OF HOPE’- ANGLICARE LILYDALE CHRISTMAS APPEAL

James Merlino, Member for Monbulk has taken the opportunity to donate a special Christmas hamper to the ‘Christmas of Hope’ Christmas appeal and has today urged everyone to get involved and help those in need.

“There are a number of things that come to mind when most people think about Christmas and the New Year – family time, sunshine, the joy of giving and receiving, holidays and children’s laughter.

However, not everyone is so fortunate. There are many people in our community that at this time, rather than feel joy, will experience loneliness, financial hardship and personal difficulties.” said Mr Merlino

You can make a difference by donating to the “Christmas of Hope” Christmas Appeal, which is being co-ordinated through Anglicare Lilydale Eastern Region, a hamper of festive food and quality gifts for children would make a huge difference for families and individuals in need.
