Christmas Spirit Alive and Kicking

Thank you to everyone who helped out and supported our Christmas campaigns this year.

A big thanks to our friends at Aussie Tune, John Sands, Infoxchange, Rotary Club Central Sunrise and Rotary Southbank, Life Melbourne church, Barea Café and all the people who have donated toys and food hampers for our Christmas Appeal.

With your support we have been able to provide Christmas gifts and food hampers for over 200 children and young people.

A special thanks to everyone at John Sands who not only helped wrap Christmas presents for us one morning from their office in Mulgrave, but also generously donated Christmas wrapping paper and cards for us to give out across all of our programs.

Thanks to our long term supporters Rotary Club Central Sunrise for donating nearly 50 food hampers for our Steps Outreach program.  We had a drop in day at our office in Preston, where over 40 people who we support, came in to pick up a hamper.

We were incredibly grateful to meet our LiveWires Christmas Campaign target of $7,000 due to our supporters pledges. We held a fantastic LiveWires End of Year Celebration where we congratulated the Year 6’s on a great year and handed out graduation t-shirts and scholarship awards for school supplies.
LiveWires participants performed hip-hop dances to start the party with the ‘Amazing Danny’ magician organising the ‘lucky door prize’ and surprising children by turning raffle tickets into lollies!  He also brought a rabbit and dove who performed disappearing acts and flew through glass without it shattering!

We wish you a Merry Christmas and a very Happy and Blessed New Year!
