Christmas Gift Appeal

Helping Children in Need

11 October 2023

At Yarra Plenty Waves, our mission goes beyond swimming. We believe in giving back to our community and making a positive impact in the lives of others. This holiday season, we invite you to join us in spreading the spirit of giving by supporting the Banyule Children’s Gift Appeal.

What is the Banyule Children’s Gift Appeal?

The Gift Appeal is a heartwarming initiative that provides gift parcels to children from families in the Banyule area who are facing financial hardship. It's a way to bring joy and hope to those who need it most during the festive season.

How Can You Help?

You can make a difference in the lives of these children and families by donating to the Gift Appeal. Your contribution, no matter the size, will go a long way in brightening the holiday season for those in need. Here are a few ways you can help:

  2. Unwrapped NEW Toys: New, unwrapped toys are always a delight for children. Your donation can make a child's Christmas more special.
