2020 Christmas Food and Gift Appeal

Published on 02 November 2020


Due to the discontinuation of overdue fines, Bland Shire Library has combined its Christmas food donations campaign Food For Fines with its Gift Giving Tree program. The combined campaigns will now come under the new name of Christmas Food and Gift Appeal.

The library’s Christmas Food and Gift Appeal will continue to support the local St Vincent de Paul Society (West Wyalong Branch) in providing Christmas hampers and gifts to those families in need – making the festive season a little brighter for those less fortunate.

Donated items can be left at the library from Monday 1 November with pick-up scheduled for Wednesday morning 16 December.

Ray Scott, President of the local St Vincent de Paul Society (West Wyalong Branch), has asked that all gifts be donated unwrapped and preferably be aimed at children up to the age of 10 years while all donated food must be non-perishable, in-date and preferably in keeping with the Christmas spirit.

Library Services Coordinator Cathy Lange says the contribution made by library members and the community in general is highly valued and greatly appreciated by both Bland Shire Library and the local St Vincent de Paul Society. In anticipation of your generous donation … thank you!
