Southern Cross Austereo Spreads the Christmas Cheer To Those In Need!
The teams at SCA and the Salvation Army have partnered once again to raise toys for underprivileged children this festive season, as part of SCA’s annual national I Believe in Christmas Toy Drive.
From November 18 to December 13, SCA will open its doors for the people of Port Pirie, Port Augusta, Whyalla, Port Lincoln & Broken Hill, to donate gifts for those who would otherwise go without.
In 2012, Southern Cross Austereo collected and donated over 22,500 toys for the Salvation Army. This year, they are hoping to raise even more for children all across Australia – with a focus on toys for teenagers aged 13 and over!
Major Neil Dickson from the Salvation Army said: “Christmas is a time of added expense for all of us. But for those who’ve barely managed throughout the year to make ends meet, they find their money no longer stretches and that added expense can be too much. This year the toys will go to children whose families are either experiencing homeless or are out of work and struggling financially.
“Some of these families are single-parent families, and sadly, some of them have escaped a domestic violence situation. We know that Christmas isn’t only about receiving gifts but it is one way we can help families feel special at Christmas and enjoy the wonders of the season like everyone else.”
To donate your gifts for the I Believe in Christmas appeal, visit any our offices: Broken Hill, Port Augusta, Port Lincoln, Port Pirie & Whyalla.
Please note: We can only accept donations of NEW unwrapped toys.
