This is the 12th year Council has worked
with the Combined Welfare Group, which
consists of representatives from the Salva-

House, to assist underprivileged families in
Last year, the group distributed 180 food
hampers to families across the Shire, with
around 300 children able to celebrate and
enjoy Christmas as part of these families.
"Up until two years ago it used to be me
that would put something under a com-
munity Christmas tree, but I never knew
where it went and did not know what it was
like to live day-to-day and struggle," a re-
cipient of a hamper and gifts last year wrote
to the Group.
"It was great that our family had a bril-
liant Christmas that we could not have
done without help. Thankyou from the bot-
tom of our hearts."
Council is asking community members
to think of the difference their generosity
can make to families in less fortunate situ-
ations than themselves, particularly at this
time of the year.

Any gifts received after this date will be
held over until next year.
It is also requested that the gifts are new
and left unwrapped under the trees.
Bass Coast Shire Council's Jay Tiziani shows off
some of the generous gifts already donated to the
Christmas Giving Tree that will be gifted to local
families in need this Christmas.
