The Gifts of Hope Christmas Appeal

Over the last two years, Covid has had a massive financial, emotional and social impact on everyone, and particularly vulnerable people in our community.  Remaining connected and helping those in need has never been more crucial.

Every year, CatholicCare Wollongong coordinate a Christmas Appeal called 'Gifts of Hope'. This year our appeal is more important than ever.

We need your help to bring the gift of hope to people doing it tough in our community.

Your generous donation can help children in Foster Care, people living with disability, socially isolated seniors, families in need and youth in Juvenile Justice.

Every year, our staff and volunteers collect the names of people in our community who would benefit from a gift of hope at Christmas time.

We are collecting gifts through our office and Catholic Education. We are also collaborating with Daniel Norris, Director at Ray White Dapto & Horsley, who is also a valued foster carer for CatholicCare.

This year, we have also introduced online fundraising so you can donate to local people in your community through this page. You can select from a range of gift vouchers and you can include a personal message of hope for the recipient.

So, please drop in and see Daniel at Ray White Dapto & Horsely to donate a gift or go to our website to share hope with people in need this Christmas.

Thank you for your generosity and kindness, helping to brighten Christmas for a local child or vulnerable person in need.

This year has been challenging in so many ways. Now that Christmas is approaching, we hope you get a bit of a break. Christmas is a special time of connection with loved ones, and an opportunity to reach out to others who may need some support. Remaining connected and helping those in need has never been more important.

On behalf of all of us at CatholicCare – our Advisory Council, staff and volunteers, we would like to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
