As the year draws to a close, the silly season commences, and we all become occupied with buying food and presents, and preparing ourselves for our family celebrations on Christmas day. Sadly, in the midst of this season of joy, countless Australian families struggle financial during this time due to the countless pressures placed on them.
The St Vincent de Paul Society works to assist these families requiring support during this busy time through it’s annual Christmas Appeal. This initiative sees the charity asking for donations of food, money, and gifts for children, which they provide to assist families during Christmas. So far this year, the society within Australia alone has provided assistance to 1.3 million people, and continues its good works in over one hundred countries across the globe.
