Our business community has really come together by staying apart and has shaped this pandemic by showing their support for each other, fostering relationships and providing others with assistance where needed.
We now ask for your help to support our wider community. It has been a tough year for everyone and we would like to call out to businesses to join the Geelong Chamber in raising money for people that need it the most this Christmas season.
You can find the Chambers' Geelong Giving Tree donation page here.
$10 gives a child a gift from Santa
$20 gives a parent or carer a gift for themselves for the first time in years
$30 helps a family celebrate over Christmas lunch
$150 helps a family buy presents for their children to open Christmas morning
Bethany Group - Community Support and Kindergarten Services in partnership with bay 93.9 Geelong and collaboration with BCYF Barwon Child, Youth & Family and The Sexual Assault & Family Violence Centre is asking Geelong community’s help to raise $100,000 for disadvantaged families and individuals for Christmas.
People nominated through local community support agencies will receive gift cards to buy Christmas presents they would otherwise struggle to afford. The appeal ends on the first of December to get the gift cards to people in time.
Thank you for your support in helping our local community so we can all celebrate a Merry Christmas with our families.
