Help Support Local Families in Need This Christmas

Christmas can be a very stressful time for many people as it coincides with added expenses during the holiday period and back to school costs. Those living in a single parent family, having a disability or a change in circumstance such as a significant illness or unexpected unemployment often experience disadvantage and financial hardship, and can do with some support at Christmas time.

Diamond Valley Community Support, in partnership with local councils and community groups facilitates two Christmas Gift appeals each year – the Banyule Childrens Gift Appeal and the Diamond Valley Gift Appeal. These gift appeals are so important to provide some relief and joy to families that are experiencing financial and/or personal hardship in the Banyule and Nillumbik region.

Last year we assisted more than 600 children with gift parcels and this year we aim to increase that as the call for help increases.

Can you support the Gift Appeal by holding a toy drive or donating to our appeals?

This support could not be possible without the generous contribution and partnerships with such groups as Banyule City Council, Vine Baptist Church, the Nillumbik Lions, 3081 Angels, Eltham Lions, Eltham Rotary and local schools, churches and community groups.
