2017 Packing Day, 8:30am Sunday 10 December 2017
Registration for volunteers will open in early November.
Venue – Cannon Hill Anglican College, Krupp Road Cannon Hill QLD.
In 2016 we were successful in delivering more than 1800 baskets, to more than 750 families, 80 homeless and 16 elderly, with our 500 volunteer. Each box contained all of the usual Christmas goodies that we take for granted at Christmas – ham, pudding, custard, snacks and biscuits, and Christmas gifts for all. Thanks to all of our volunteers and Committee members for 2016.
