16 November 2018

DOOLEYS are once again partnering with the St Vincent de Paul Society NSW for their 'Christmas Giving Tree' initiative for local families in need.

For most people, Christmas is a time for family, fun and presents however for many local families who are struggling to make ends meet, buying presents is a luxury they simply cannot afford. For these families, Christmas can be a very difficult time of year. 

That's where you come in. The DOOLEYS Christmas Giving Tree is your opportunity to donate a gift at any DOOLEYS Club from 5 November to 5 December.

"A small gift can help out a smile on the face a young boy or girl that come from struggling household this Christmas," explained DOOLEYS Community Relations Co-ordinator, Tamara Lewis. 

"Christmas can be a daunting time for many families and here at DOOLEYS we try our very best to ensure that everyone in our community has the opportunity to enjoy Christmas."

DOOLEYS is proud to get behind this initiative each year to ensure families experience the real joys of Christmas. Donated gift items can be left at the Reception of any of our three venues located in Lidcombe, Regents Park and Silverwater.
