Christmas and the City of Wollongong Giving Tree will be a little bit different this year.

Community members looking to embrace the spirit of Christmas are being asked to donate online to the City’s Giving Tree Appeal. This is a change from previous years, to reduce the number of physical gifts being accepted due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Online donations can be made directly to Anglicare and St Vincent de Paul Society who will use your donation to assist in the purchasing of food and gifts, supporting those most vulnerable in our community over the festive season.

Wollongong City Lord Mayor Councillor Gordon Bradbery AM encourages the community to embrace the Christmas spirit and help others where possible.
