Making Christmas day special

Bass Coast Shire Council Mayor, Cr Michael Whelan, thanked all involved in gifting for their wonderful generosity so far, stating how proud council are to support such an impactful initiative. "Every gift contributed to the Christmas Giving Trees program makes a huge difference to children and families doing it tough."

"Christmas can be a very hard time for many families, for many reasons. But by thinking of others through these small acts of kindness, your Christmas Tree gift will bring welcome joy to another member of our community - embodying the spirit of the season." Cr Whelan said.

Christmas Giving Trees are on display in council's Customer Service Centres.

  • Wonthaggi

Gifts will be accepted from 10am to 3pm. We ask the community and local business to place new unwrapped gifts under the trees by Friday, 16 December. Gifts received after this date will be held over until next year.
