The Giving Tree

6 November 2018

You can make Christmas a little brighter for someone by giving generously to the BCS Christmas Giving Tree. Gifts are accepted at Belconnen Community Centre (BCC) until Friday 30 November. Monetary donations are also accepted throughout the year.

Christmas is a time for family, friends and giving. But for many, the Christmas season can be a difficult time. Each year, the Belconnen Community Service (BCS) Giving Tree distributes  hampers to households in the Belconnen region. In early December, BCS employees and volunteers will  sort through the hundreds of donations received as part of the Giving Tree program. The donated gifts will be assembled into hampers, which are given to the individuals and families who have been nominated to receive a hamper. In 2017 the BCS team prepared 107 hampers!

You can donate to the 2018 BCS Giving Tree 2018 at BCC Reception, 23 Swaonson Court, Belconnen. Credit card donations may be made over the phone on 02 62640200.

The Giving Tree is made possible by generous donations from our community and the support of our longstanding partner, Radford college.

The Giving Tree accepts gifts suitable for people of all ages and from all walks of life.
