This Christmas season, DOOLEYS wish to support our local displaced Ukrainian community as they settle into their new homes in Australia.
Leaving Ukraine with the clothes on their back and nothing else, DOOLEYS feel it is imperative to ensure our community have not only everything they need to live day-to-day, but also special gifts to bring them joy this Christmas.
Therefore, DOOLEYS will be hosting a CHRISTMAS GIVING TREE in our Lidcombe venue and invite all our Members and Staff to contribute a small present to the Ukrainian-displaced children and women in our community.
Please drop off your gifts at DOOLEYS Lidcombe between 21 November – 24 December, located at the John Street entrance. A list of requested items can be found here and at any DOOLEYS Reception. Please indicate on your gift the age and gender of the intended recipient.
All gifts will be sent to the Blue and Yellow Hearts charity, created in March 2022 by Natalka Oleksyn, a passionate Ukrainian member of our DOOLEYS community, and then distributed to Ukrainian displaced families at the charity centre at Strathfield West on Ukrainian Christmas Day, 7th January 2023!
