Every year the Adopt-A-Family for Christmas appeal brightens the lives of local families facing adversity at Christmas time.

For most of us Christmas is a time of joy, love, gifts and quality time with family. But there are many families in our community who are experiencing financial hardship or difficulty. This year, you can make a difference by brightening their lives and sharing the spirit of the season. 

The Adopt a Family for Christmas Appeal works with local charities and welfare agencies to identify families in need that you can ‘adopt’ by sourcing gifts, hampers or food to donate. From individuals to businesses and schools, everyone can get involved! 

Please contact us on 02 6643 0500 or email grafton@dailyexaminer.com.au to make a difference this Christmas.
