#HampersofHope begins at Addi Road in Marrickville on a Monday.
Each day during the week we move towards our target of 1000+ gift hampers.
Each day our volunteers and our donors help us to put them together with care and love, including essentials, treats and small presents that might make Christmas day more special for those who need it most.
Each day the community, charity and civil society groups we work with – as well as some amazing individuals who know exactly where the need is at its greatest – keep coming to us in their vans and their own cars to take our Addi Road ‘Hampers of Hope’ away and deliver them to individuals and families across the holiday season.
Each day we start again.
Our donors, supporters, partner organisations and volunteers coming together as one.
Come Friday, Addi Road have managed to make 1,350 #HampersofHope.
Thank you everyone for joining us during the week and being a precious part of our community at this time.
For all kinds of reasons it was an unforgettable week in an unforgettable year.
A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all.
