Country Hope launches Christmas Gift Appeal with Beyond Bank Australia
Commencing Monday 31 October, locals can drop oft presents at the Bank’s branches in Wagga, Coolamon, Ganmain, Griffith, Narrandera and Leeton.
In previous years, hundreds of gifts have been donated and the Bank has been overwhelmed by the generosity of customers and residents.
“Our Christmas Gift Appeal is now in its 6th year and with the inclusion of our new branches in Griffith, Narrandera and Leeton, gives the community more places to drop gifts off,” said Karen Garrod, Community Development Manager, Beyond Bank.
“Presents of all shapes and sizes are welcome for children from young infants through to 16 year olds.
“And it doesn’t have to cost a fortune. All that is needed are new, unwrapped presents up to the value of $20.
“I have a great feeling that we will get tremendous support and I’m looking forward to the annual Country Hope Christmas Party on Sunday November 27th which should be bigger and better than ever,” said Ms Garrod.
“The support of the community makes a huge difference in helping our families,” said Ellie Webb from Country Hope.
“We know our local community enjoys giving gifts because they recognise that a child will really benefit from it.”
The appeal runs from Monday October 31 to Thursday November 24.
Gifts can be delivered to participating Beyond Bank Branches, Wagga, Coolamon, Ganmain, Griffith, Narrandera and Leeton.
