How Can you Help?
Christmas can be a difficult time for people and The Salvation Army aim to bring hope to those who are struggling or lonely in the form of toys and gifts, food hampers and Christmas lunches and dinners. This is one of the busiest times of year for The Salvation Army. Across Australia, The Salvation Army is expected to distribute more food vouchers, hampers, gifts and meals than any other time of year.
“We would like to encourage those who are able, to embrace the spirit of giving this Christmas,” says Leigh Cleave, Communications and Fundraising Director for The Salvation Army. “Through your generous donation, you can make a meaningful difference and bring comfort and joy to Aussies doing it tough.”
Each year The Salvation Army distributes more than half a million gifts and toys to children, young people, adults and many elderly people living alone.
Donations of new toys for children of all ages, especially boys and teenagers can be left at Rydges Hotels & Resorts, Atura Hotels around Australia. Gifts should be new and not wrapped.
Guests can also add a $2 tax deductible donation when booking online.
Last year over 1500 gifts were donated through our hotels to children and families in need at this special time of Christmas. This year help us get to 2000!
QT Hotels and Resorts would like to thank guests and the local community for their support this Christmas!
