Calling all Secret Santas
The City of Parramatta Gift Appeal for The Children’s Hospital at Westmead, will take place from 25 November to 15 December.
Members of the local community are encouraged to donate a gift and drop it off to the Council Office (126 Church Street, Parramatta), Parramatta Heritage And Visitor Information Centre (346A Chruch St, Parramatta), or any of Council Library branches.
Gifts required are for all ages including teenagers and should be new and unwrapped.
How the toys will help
Each year, The Children’s Hospital at Westmead cares for around 300 children and young adults who are too unwell to make it home for Christmas. To help make Christmas in hospital a little easier, The Children’s Hospital at Westmead organises a number of events to bring the festive season to their patients, including a visit from the man in red himself on Christmas Day. By donating toys to the Hospital, you will be helping to ensure Santa has enough special gifts for every child this Christmas.
For health and safety reasons, it is important that donated gifts are brand new, unopened and still in manufacturers' packaging or with the tags attached. For more information, see the Toy Guidelines.
