January 24, 2018

The results from our 2017 Christmas Appeal are in and we’re excited to say that it is our most successful appeal yet.

We called on the WA community to dig deep to help feed children who would otherwise go without a meal at Christmas time, and your response was overwhelming.

This year we raised:

  • 331,302 additional meals
  • 2,500+ festive food hampers delivered

The following initiatives contributed to this incredible result: 

CHRISTMAS DIRECT MAIL APPEAL

Raised enough funds to purchase 260,000 additional meals 

FESTIVE FOOD DRIVES

Over 180 food drives were hosted throughout the state, raising enough food to provide 49,678 additional meals 

HAWAIIAN GIVING BOX

More than 21,624 additional meals were donated via the Hawaiian Giving Boxes located in Hawaiian shopping centres and online 

GIVE A FEED

We exceeded our target of 2,500 festive food hampers delivered to local families in time for Christmas, with additional funds raised going towards the purchase of more food. 

A huge thanks to our staff, volunteers and ambassadors for making this possible.

You’re efforts have certainly made a huge difference to the lives of local families doing it tough.
