Care Bags Christmas Donation Drive

With over 5,500 children in foster and residential care / group homes in Western Australia, there are some kids that may go without this Christmas.

Our club is again hosting a donation drive for Care Bags. If you would like to donate a stocking (182g $5.00 ea) or unwrapped gift, you will help bring a smile to the dial of kids who need it more than you will ever know.

If you’d prefer to donate money, a Care Bags personal shopper can purchase gifts or stockings for you. They typically spend around $30 on each child, however you’re welcome to donate an unwrapped gift of any size or value. Feel free to throw in a roll of wrapping paper and tape!
