SALVATION
ARMY CHRISTMAS APPEAL

As the holiday season approaches, we know that  there are many families in the community who will find the extra costs of Christmas a struggle.  The Salvation Army helps thousands of Australian families in need through their Annual Christmas Appeal.

To assist this very worthwhile cause, each year, we have a Christmas Giving Tree at our Year End Shows. We are always amazed at the response of so many families generously donating toys, food and money.  The Salvation Army are always so very grateful for your support.  We are asking our Academy families to participate again in joining the Christmas Appeal. There are three easy donation opportunities available:

NEW TOY APPEAL  

Families can donate a *new toy or gift (unwrapped). Egs: puzzles, games, books, gift vouchers.
FOOD DRIVE     

Families can donate *non-perishable food items such as ring-pull tinned goods, chocolates, biscuits, Christmas food, etc.

CASH DONATION

Donation tins will be on hand at the shows for anyone who would prefer to make a cash donation.

(*Please note: The Salvation Army asks us  for new toys only, to avoid no-name food brands and to ensure expiry dates are well into next year.  For further gift ideas, please visit the Salvation Army Christmas Appeal website:  www.salvationarmy.org.au/schools/christmas)

If you would like to donate an item, please bring it to your child’s Year End show venue (not classes, as it is difficult for our teachers to transport them!) and place it under our ‘Giving Tree.’   Please also share this news with family and friends who are coming to the shows, as we would love for them to be involved!  Thank you for joining us in supporting the Salvos!
