Events & news Community newsroom Christmas spirit on show as centre flooded with donations The Fraser Coast community's Christmas spirit has been on full display as donations flood into Hervey Bay Community Centre. Toys, clothing, food and toiletries have all been dropped off, in bulk, over the past few weeks. The influx started with a huge delivery of Bonds clothing items and underwear, donated by GIVIT as part of their partnership with the iconic clothing brand. GIVIT CEO Sarah Tennant said GIVIT was extremely proud of its ongoing partnership with Bonds. This holiday season, Bonds is giving one million undies, socks and clothing to help Aussies in need. Launching Bonds Christmas initiative, Give A Little Help A Million, the campaign champions the act of generosity and seeks to remind Aussies what’s important at this time of year. “It is an incredible gesture of generosity and has been so well received by the thousands of charities we support. The ongoing drought, the bushfires earlier in the year and the impacts of COVID means our charities are supporting more Australians than ever before, including many who have never before needed to ask for help," Ms Tennant said. The centre also gratefully received a truckload of toys and Christmas gifts for children in need, donated by the Wide Bay chapter of M.A.C.E. (Motorcyclists Advocating Child Empowerment). These toys will be made available to families in need of a boost this Christmas season. They will bring much needed joy to kids doing it tough. From the whole team at the Hervey Bay Neighbourhood Centre, thank you to these kind donors, and to the entire Fraser Coast community for your ongoing support.
