Abbotsbury Uniting Church secretary Florence Callicott is urging people to dig deep for the annual Target UnitingCare Christmas Appeal.

Now in its 27th year, Target and Uniting Care Australia have teamed up to once again improve the lives of thousands of Australians struggling during this festive season.

Funds raised from their Christmas appeal will help the UnitingCare Network to support its community services and programs nationwide.

How can you help?

Residents can leave an unwrapped gift or purchase a $2 gift bauble at the Wetherill Park or Liverpool Target store. 

Abbotsbury Uniting Church will collect the donations and distribute them to children and families in need.

UnitingCare volunteer, Florence Callicott said: “The team at Abbotsbury is pleased to play even a small part in such an important community campaign and encourage shoppers to donate as much or as little as they can.”

In 2017, the appeal raised $700,000 nationwide from more than 22,000 donations which supported more than 42,000 Australian families.

The appeal runs until December 24.
