The Salvation Army Christmas Appeal 2017

The Ray White Mermaid Beach Salvation Army Christmas Appeal 2017 is officially launched.

Ray White Mermaid Beach is proud to give back to those in our community who need it most & this year we have once again partnered with our friends at the Salvation Army in their toy & food drive for the Annual Salvation Army Christmas Appeal.

Captain Neville Hall & his wife, Jenny, work tirelessly to look after their vast network of people in need & they have kindly provided us the avenue to be part of their team.

If you would like to be part of this great community spirit, we are collecting items in our office between 8:30 am – 5:00pm Monday to Friday and 8:30 am – 12:30pm Saturday.   Donations will be collected by The Salvation Army on Friday 8th December 2017.

Need help with deciding what to donate :  toys, Christmas food, gift cards, beach towels.

Whilst some of us are planning our day around the leg of  ham & pudding or maybe the prawns & cheesecake, there are many families & individuals out there who are not so fortunate & can only dream of such things, or maybe they even choose not to dream for fear of disappointment.

We know this sounds sad, morbid, depressing & any other adjective you can think of in that category however, there is something really good to take out of this.

WE CAN ALL DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!

If you cant make it to our office, monetary donations are being accepted through our Go Fund Me page & will be converted to Gift Cards.  Click here to Donate Now.

There is one more way you can help :

Volunteers are needed for the Christmas Lunch on Saturday 16th December.  If you would like to volunteer or have friends or family who would like to volunteer, please contact Neville or Jenny at The Salvation Army Church Elanora, on 07 5598 2283.

Let’s all give this the biggest push we have ever given anything & make it THE BEST CHRISTMAS EVER for “someone”.
