Some hampers ready to go

Whitehead Storehouse is delighted to announce that  it has been organising and delivering its annual Christmas Hamper Gift Program, dedicated to supporting local residents facing economic difficulties during the festive season.

As the holiday season approaches, we recognise that many individuals and families in our community have been, and will still be experiencing financial challenges, making it difficult to fully embrace the joy of the season. In response to this need, Whitehead Storehouse runs a Christmas Hamper Gift Program to spread warmth and goodwill to those who need it most.

Volunteers from Whitehead Storehouse sorted and distributed the hampers to pre-registered individuals and families, ensuring a smooth and organized process that demonstrates their commitment to supporting the community during these challenging times.
