2020 Vinnies Christmas Appeal – calling for non-perishable food item donations

November 20, 2020

SFX is once again participating in the Vinnies Christmas Appeal. The Vinnies Christmas Appeal is all about renewing hope and bringing joy to those less fortunate. 2020 has been a challenging year, with many local families under increased financial stress – so we want to do our part to help!

SFX will be supporting our local St Vincent de Paul Society (Kippax). If you would like to get involved, you can help by donating non-perishable food items for hampers or by purchasing a gift.

Suggested non-perishable food items:

  • Jar of jam
  • Jar of coffee
  • Large packet of chips
  • Jar of pasta sauce
  • Breakfast cereal
  • Chocolates
  • Packet of lollies
  • Cans of spaghetti and baked beans
  • Jar of Milo (or similar)
  • Packet of sweet biscuits or shortbread
  • Box of Christmas bob-bons
  • Packet of nuts
  • Packet of pasta or rice
  • Tinned fruit
  • Box of tea bags
  • Packet of savoury biscuits
  • Bottle of cordial or fruit juice

Gift suggestions (gifts should be new in packaging and unwrapped):

  • Books
  • Towels/blankets
  • Colouring pencils
  • Board games or puzzles
  • Sports equipment
  • Movie or shopping gift cards
  • Perfume/cologne
  • Toiletries/soap packs

Non-perishable food items and gifts can be placed in the boxes under the Christmas tree located near the SFX chapel.

The cut off for donations is Tuesday 8 December 2020 so that Vinnies can distribute donations in time for Christmas!

Thank you in advance for your support and Christmas spirit!
