2022 Christmas Hampers
Christmas is the season of giving, but unfortunately, not everyone will receive a gift this festive season.
For the past eight years, our dedicated Mission team has tried to ensure those we support who may be socially isolated or financially disadvantaged do not feel alone at Christmas, through our hamper drive.
What started out with 30 hampers in 2015 has grown year upon year, as the true need for these hampers emerged.
This year, off the back of COVID and with a sharp rise in the cost of living, demand has skyrocketed, with 750 hampers needed for our affordable homes residents, children, adults and families from our disability services, and clients who receive care at home.
Can you help us complete our biggest hamper drive ever for 2022?
Affordable homes resident Marjorie, aged 85, says she still remembers receiving her first Christmas hamper more than six years ago.
“I was like a kid at Christmas,” she recalls. “I was just not expecting it and I was so impressed with the items inside.”
Marjorie says the arrival of hampers is eagerly anticipated by her neighbours, many of whom live alone.
For some people, I know it’s the only present they receive at Christmas. To me, it’s not even about the gifts, but the gift itself that someone is thinking of you.

Other recipients also tell us receiving items such as food, decorations, toiletries and toys makes them feel less alone.
“One of my clients who received a Christmas hamper last year rang to say how grateful she is to VMCH for thinking of her,” one of our staff members recalls. “She is caring for her Mum and is quite socially isolated.”
Unfortunately, businesses who’ve donated in previous years have also been hit hard by the pandemic, and our supplies for donations are running low.
So, if you would like to have a hand in brightening someone’s Christmas who really needs it this year, please consider donating to our 2022 Christmas Appeal.
