Vinnies Christmas Appeal

Christmas time is tough for many families. 
For many, Christmas is full of financial stress and hardship and not the joyous occasion it is meant to be.

Vinnies works hard to bring a little cheer back into the Christmas season and every year reaches out to many families in our local community, offering support.

Every year St Thomas More College community has given generously to the St Vincent de Paul Christmas Appeal and we continuing to support to support this great initiative.

The students of St Thomas More have been busily collecting non-perishable food for hampers over the past few weeks. We have a collection of food that is steadily growing and with the continued support of our community, we are confident we will meet our ambitious goal of doubling the size of our contribution to this great cause.

During one week we collected “Christmas food” encompasses a wide range of delicious treats enjoyed at Christmas, items included:

  • shortbread biscuits
  • packets of lollies
  • boxes of candy canes
  • packets of crackers
  • Christmas crackers
  • packet mix cakes
  • tinned puddings/fruit cake
