Thank you ALL for your support!
After a year filled with uncertainty and challenges, more than $30,000 was raised through our Christmas activities providing gifts for children, food parcels, takeaway Christmas meals – and more!
WestCare Toy Appeal
The parents of more than 240 children known to our WestCare Centre were able to select from the ‘treasure trove’ of donated gifts. A further 130 clients in our Care Pathways and Disability Pathways services also received a Christmas gift.
More than 175 guests at our WestCare Centre enjoyed a takeaway meal of home-cooked chicken, turkey (with all the trimmings) and Christmas pudding with custard.
Baptist Care SA’s Limestone Coast Toy Run
Baptist Care SA’s Limestone Coast Toy Run took place, despite the odds. The community rallied together to raise close to $10,000 for struggling families. 352 children and young people received gifts distributed through 12 schools and community organisations.
LIFE FM’s ‘December to Remember’
The wonderful LIFE FM Roadies team and their ‘December to Remember’ campaign provided more than 160 ‘present bundles’ for our WestCare clients on Christmas Day – filled with essentials including a water bottle, dental kit and some Christmas goodies.
Thank you to our donors and supporters, staff and volunteers, churches, businesses, clubs and community groups who responded so generously!
