PARISH CHRISTMAS HAMPER APPEAL 2017
Congratulations and Thank You for your extremely generous response to our Parish Christmas Hamper Appeal! The participation from the Parish communities at Kenmore and Moggill and the Parish School Community was outstanding. You have helped 107 families, comprising 455 people including 269 children, they now will have a brighter Christmas.
A total of 138 hampers and 31 envelopes with gift cards were delivered. In addition to 138 hampers packed to the brim, you donated $8950 cash or gift cards for specific hampers (not including the vouchers you might have packed yourselves), $3100 in additional cash, and many, many food items. The food donations and additional cash were used for the few families that did not have a donor identified and to top up some hampers for larger families. Left over donations ($13 cash, food and gifts) were passed on to SVDP Kenmore and to the Kenmore Churches Christmas lunch at the Carroll Community Centre.
Thanks also to the many people including the Parish School Staff who helped with the Hamper Appeal and espe-cially the many young parish members of the Parish community who gave their time and muscles to prepare box-es, pack and move and load the many hampers these last couple of weeks.
Thank you so much! May God bless you and your families for your generosity! From the Parish Hamper Committee.
