Thanks to the generosity of the West Australian community, UnitingCare West was able to assist hundreds of families, children and individuals who were experiencing disadvantage during the Christmas period.
UCW provided food hampers, Christmas gifts and emergency assistance to many families and individuals in the community, who for various reasons, were in survival mode, rather than festive mode.
This Christmas, UnitingCare West has been able to deliver 1,125 food hampers and provide gifts to 768 children.
In 2016, UnitingCare Australia celebrated a 25 year partnership with Target, which produced an excellent result, due to shoppers who kindly donated gifts and purchased $1 gift tags at the register.
Schools, local communities, congregations and corporate partners also assisted by volunteering their time, donating goods and hosting appeals, to ensure that UCW had sufficient food and gifts to distribute.
UnitingCare West would like to express a huge thank you to all supporters that contributed to the Christmas Appeal this year. WA, we couldn’t have done it without you!
