Mosman Council’s 2019 Christmas Gift Appeal is now open and this year gifts are going to children in drought-affected communities across regional NSW, in partnership with Mosman resident Selina Win Pe’s Will of Courage foundation.
Residents wishing to bring a smile to a child’s face this Christmas can leave new unwrapped gifts beneath the Christmas tree in the Council foyer during business hours. Barry O’Keefe Library will also accept donations of gifts on weekends. Gifts can be suitable for any age between 0 -18 years and popular choices include books, toys, art and craft sets, educational materials, sporting goods, clothing and toiletries.
Selina will be visiting nearly 20 towns around NSW to distribute the gifts, including the Riverina and South East Slopes towns of West Wyalong, Temora, Cootamundra and Young (Covers Wombat and Harden), the Central West towns of Orange, Forbes, Parkes (covers Bogan Gate and Peak Hill), Cowra, Condobolin, Tullibigeal, Lake Cargelligo, Tottenham and Fifield; and the North West and Northern Tablelands towns of Gunnedah, Tamworth, Inverell, Bendemeer and Walcha.
The appeal is open until Monday 9 December.
