Bass Coast Christmas Giving Trees
November 26 @ 8:30 am - December 10 @ 5:00 pm
Bass Coast Christmas Giving Trees are in all Council Customer Service Centres – Wonthaggi, Cowes, Grantville and Inverloch. Donate your gift Gifts up to Monday 10 December. Any gifts received after this date will be held over until next year. By donating a gift you can ensure that Christmas is a special day for all Bass Coast community members.
It is also requested that the gifts are new and left unwrapped under the trees. Food donations are not recommended.
The project is coordinated by the Combined Welfare Group which includes organisations such as the Salvation Army, St Vincent de Paul and Bass Coast Health’s Davey House. These services work directly with local families.
Bass Coast Mayor, Cr Brett Tessari, says, “There are many factors that can contribute to families experiencing financial hardship. The Giving Tree takes a little bit of pressure off some families over Christmas.”
