Small donation can help make Christmas
People are being urged to play a small part in putting a smile on children’s faces at Christmas this year.
As part of the Manjimup St Vincent de Paul annual Christmas food hamper drive, organisers are calling on people to donate toys to go to children who would otherwise miss out.
Manjimup St Vincent de Paul conference member Tracy Lambert said toys could be dropped off at Toyworld Manjimup until December 14.
More than 100 children received a gift last year as part of the toy appeal.
“We’ve already had a $200 voucher as an anonymous gift to kick start the appeal,” she said.
“Toys can also go into the food donation drop off points at Manjimup Coles and Woolworths.”
This year, organisers can no longer accept pre-loved gifts due to COVID-19 concerns.
“As part of this appeal, every child who is registered will have a brand new gift,” Mrs Lambert said.
“Kids up to 16 years old will receive a gift.
“We’re only asking for “stocking fillers”, nothing that will break the bank, we don’t want to put people in that position.”
Mrs Lambert said they were looking for presents for boys and girls.
