Blue Mountains Youth Council’s Community Christmas ‘Giving Tree’ Project – Launch Invitation
It’s that time of year again, when family and friends get together and celebrate Christmas; however, for many of our young people this can be a time of sadness and loneliness. That’s why the Youth Councillors invite you to share the Christmas Spirit with the young people of the Blue Mountains who are in need of support. Please help us do that by launching our Community Christmas ‘Giving Tree’ project.
Date: Saturday, 28 November 2015
Time: 12 noon – 1:00 pm
Venue: Blue Mountains Theatre & Community Hub
Springwood Central Library
104 Macquarie Road, Springwood
We hope you can join us to launch the ‘Giving Tree’ project, hear special guests, enjoy some entertainment and refreshments, and meet the Blue Mountains Youth Councillors. We believe this would be a great example of the caring, united community we have here in the Blue Mountains.
We would also like to invite you to contribute by donating a gift and in exchange a decoration with your name and/or logo will be hung on the ‘Giving Tree’. All donations will be given to Platform Youth Services to distribute to young people in need. Preferred donations are gifts that any teenager would wish to receive for Christmas.
Some suggested items to donate (preferably gift-wrapped with a description to let us know what’s inside):
• toiletries such as body lotion, body spray and/or makeup;
• accessories such as hair clips, purses and trinkets;
• sports gear such as for cricket, soccer;
• music items such as iTunes vouchers, headphones;
• edible treats such as chocolates, biscuits;
• clothes such as socks, t-shirts.
If you require any further information, please contact Anita Kazis, Council’s Youth Services Development Officer, t: 4780 5680, or e: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks and yours faithfully
Blue Mountains Youth Council
