Berry Merry 2013
Thank you for helping us bring the spirit of Christmas to over 2,000 children!
Our Berry Merry 2013 Christmas Gift Appeal was the most successful yet with thanks to the generosity of over 300 organisations, community groups, schools and individuals. Together, you helped provide gifts to over 2,000 children and young people being supported by Berry Street across Victoria - children and young people who have suffered the devastating effects of family violence, abuse and neglect, and who otherwise would have received nothing.
As well as receiving hundreds of high quality and thoughtful gifts, we also reached our target of raising $65,000 to assist us with the purchase of special gifts for young people - a fantastic effort!
Unfortunately the need for our services and the number of children and young people in our care continue to grow, this is why the increase in participants and number of gifts donated raise each year.
With the mass of logistics involved in an Appeal such as this, we require all the help we can get. As such, we had a total of 239 corporate and individual volunteers working a total of 1042 hours. Tasks they were involved in included collections and deliveries, cleaning, counting, sorting and packing. We just could not have done it without you!
So again, thank you to everyone involved.
