Parramatta Leagues ‘Tree of Joy’ will certainly bring joy to the lives of young people cared for by Parramatta Mission.
A yearly tradition, members and guests of the Club have been donating gifts to the Tree of Joy for many years. You are being asked again this year to donate Christmas gifts and place them under the tree.
Parramatta Mission provides accommodation and support to people who are facing crisis, people who are homeless and people living with mental illness; people who often have no support from family or friends and find themselves socially isolated. To know there are people in their community, who care, brings them some level of warmth at a time when they feel especially lonely.
Parramatta Mission cares for children, young people, women and men, so gifts appropriate to all ages and both genders are greatly appreciated. Basic items of clothing are always in need, as well as toys for the children in the domestic violence refuge (non-motorised), and the Mission’s young people really appreciate iTunes vouchers!
Please help bring joy to disadvantaged children and families this Christmas by donating a gift to the Tree of Joy. While most of us enjoy the spirit of giving and receiving gifts at Christmas, many people miss out. Your donation of a Christmas gift can make a positive difference to someone’s life.
The tree is now on display in the Club foyer and gifts must be delivered to the Club by Monday 12 December to allow time for Parramatta Mission to distribute the gifts to the people that need them the most.
If you would like more information please feel free to contact Parramatta Leagues Club reception on 8833 0777.
