Sharing Hope at Christmas with Families in Need
Hope at Christmas is all about helping families in need. The simple act of giving gift baskets at Christmas has seen hundreds of families in Brisbane and Toowoomba impacted in a positive way.
This year we plan to make it even greater than the last.
Creating your own Hamper is very simple!
Place all of your items in a hamper (basket or some other attractive, sturdy container) that can be used to present the food items well. Caution, these hampers can get quite heavy!
Attach a slip with your name or company name firmly to the outside of the hamper. Deliver your Christmas hamper by the due date, to either Brisbane or Toowoomba, as per the instructions below. The following weekend your beautifully wrapped gift will be delivered directly to a family in need.
Don’t know what to buy?
Here are some suggested items:
Christmas Cake or Plum Pudding, Fruit Mince Pies, Tinned Foods, Juice, Bottles of Drink,
Stuffing Mix, Coffee/Tea, Pasta or Rice, Nuts, Biscuits or Crackers, Lollies (wrapped only please), Pretzels or Chips.
Please do not include chocolate or perishables as they don’t agree with our Qld summer. Please also avoid items that may get crushed easily.
