2023 Christmas Hampers

Your generosity will help us spread Christmas cheer.

Making spirits bright this Christmas

Sometimes the most valued gifts don’t come with a price tag.

It’s hard not to get caught up in the consumer-driven culture of Christmas – but the true meaning of Christmas is all around us, especially across the VMCH community.

Each year VMCH relies on donations from generous folk like you to ensure hundreds of vulnerable people receive a little joy at Christmas through our hamper appeal.

It’s been an especially tough year for many. The cost of living has pushed people to the brink, with nothing left to spend on luxuries. For some, even the necessities are out of reach.

This year will be our biggest hamper drive yet, with 800 people in need across our affordable homes, home care, and disability services.

Our VMCH community has heard the call – and our people are contributing in any way they can to make sure our hampers reach as many people as possible…

Will you join our incredible community and help us share the real meaning of Christmas?

 Bring a smile to those who need it most

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.”
