Christmas can be a difficult time for many people in our community. With the effects of the pandemic continuing to be felt, we think of those who are confronted with hardship for the first time and are bracing themselves for a very different Christmas this year. For people and families facing financial stress, many will struggle to access daily necessities, such as food, essential items, and even a safe place to live.
The Target Christmas Appeal has proudly partnered with UnitingCare Australia for the past 29 years to give customers the chance to support a better Christmas for those in need. Giving to the Appeal will help make Christmas a better day for thousands of people and families who might otherwise go without.
The UnitingCare Australia network is one of the largest networks of community service providers in Australia with many well-known services such as Lifeline and Wesley Mission. They support 1.4 million people every year across urban, rural and remote communities and have over 50,000 staff and 30,000 volunteers assisting our most vulnerable, especially older Australians, people with disability, our First Peoples and those experiencing social and economic inequality. UnitingCare Australia believes that everyone, no matter their circumstance, has the right to live life to their full potential.
The Appeal runs from Monday 9th of November to the 24th December. Target customers will have the opportunity to purchase a packet of six gift tags designed in a variety of trends for $3. The gift tags can be found at registers in all Target stores. To make an online donation please click below:
100% of all contributions go directly to UnitingCare Australia and their national network of community service providers, who have been at the front line of service provision for over 100 years.
