Lend your hand to help children

Do you love Christmas? Or maybe you just enjoy the satisfaction of wrapping the perfect gift?

The Kids of Macarthur Health Foundation needs your help to wrap gifts and support children in need.

During December the team at Kids of Macarthur and their volunteers will put their best hands forward to wrap Christmas presents at Macarthur Square.

Chief executive Denise McGrath said the team has a lot of fun during the three long weeks of gift wrapping.

“The customers make it fun, they are really supportive,” she said.

“Currently we are looking for volunteers to help us with the task, even if you have no experience, we would love to have you on board.

“Last year we had a fantastic turnout. Hundreds of generous customers let us wrap their gifts for a gold coin donation and that money has gone directly towards purchasing much needed paediatric medical equipment at Campbelltown and Camden hospitals.

“Our foundation aims to fund additional equipment and services that are not currently funded by government, so we can keep the regions sick kids in local hospitals.”

Kids of Macarthur Health Foundation will be wrapping from Monday, December 4 until Christmas Eve.
