Drop into a MidCoast Council Customer Service Point before 15 December and place unwrapped gifts and foods under the Christmas tree to help everyone enjoy the holiday season.
The Christmas trees will be up from Friday 1 December to Friday 15 December at the Customer Contact Points at Taree, Forster, Stroud, Gloucester and Tea Gardens.
Anyone can come in and drop off a gift or food and they will be given to local charities in the community including neighbourhood centres.
Christmas is a great time to make a difference if you are in a financial position to donate to charity.
When you donate to charity for Christmas, you support families at what may be a difficult time.
It is also a great way to teach your family the importance of giving back to the community. Ask your children to pick out a gift that they think other kids their age might like to get for Christmas and help teach them the joy of giving.
