Christmas is a special time for many, but some families are less fortunate than others.

We are pleased to partner with You Matter for this year’s annual gift giving program. You Matter supports women and families who have experienced family violence by providing furniture and other household items necessary to run a functional home. You can find out more about this organisation on the You Matter website.

Donations will open on Monday 7 November 2022, and we encourage you to donate a new book from a local Boroondara business.

The books you donate will be distributed to families with children who will enjoy these gifts.

All donations must be received by close of business on Friday 2 December 2022 so that they can be distributed.
