You have an opportunity to support CHIPS by purchasing items for our Christmas Hampers for families who need a bit of extra help this year.
Some of you know CHIPS well, but for those that don’t, CHIPS is an organisation that works with Primary Schools in Casey, Cardinia and Knox. We run many programs and have Chaplains in 16 primary schools to provide support for struggling children and their families.
The Christmas Hampers are made up of items that a family needs to have a Christmas lunch. They will be distributed to our 2017 Life Gets Better camp families and other families in need (via the schools) the week before Christmas.
Attached is an image with the items needed to make up a Hamper. Each Hamper costs $23.05. CHIPS will add a Pudding, Bertocchi Ham and a family board game to complete the Hampers.
If you’re not able to physically purchase the Hamper items, then please consider donating to CHIPS, either $25 for a board game, $23.05 for Hamper items or $10 for a Christmas pudding. You can donate by heading to www.givenow.com.au/chips
If you’re unable to financially support CHIPS’ Hamper costs, then why not offer to help pack and/or distribute the Hampers? If you’d like to volunteer or have any questions, please contact us on 9702 5528, or via the Contact Us button.
We’d love to have you partner with us in Changing Little Worlds in BIG Ways!
PS- please let us know if you are going to purchase Hamper items, a Christmas pudding or a family board game so we can get an idea of numbers. Hampers need to be delivered to CHIPS by December 5th.
