Christmas Hampers Committee is a sub-committee of St Anne’s St Vincent de Paul.
The committee meets on the first Wednesday of each month (generally) at 7.30pm in the parish centre.
The aim of the group is to provide Christmas celebration meals to local families in need (approx. 200+) as determined by the committee, Vinnies during its home visits or as nominated by parishioners or referrals, whilst also assisting in the delivery of Vinnies toys to local families.
During the year we raise funds through “Christmas in July” parish raffle, donations of groceries from St Joachim’s school pupils, and a lapathon event run by St Anne’s pupils. Also we receive financial and grocery support from local businesses, generous parishioners and local Woolworths supermarkets. In November each year we hold a Sausage Sizzle at Bunnings in Carrum Downs which is of great financial assistance.
Christmas Hamper Committee is open to anyone who wishes to become involved.
