Mount Gambier Community Christmas Appeal

All donations to the appeal are distributed through the Christmas Cheer Program delivered by the following agencies:

  • Uniting Care
  • ac.care
  • Lifeline SE
  • St Vincent De Paul
  • The Salvation Army.

Additional coordination and support is offered through the Sunset Kitchen and Families SA.

Why support the Mount Gambier Community Christmas Appeal:

  • The appeal relies solely on the support of local donors – the service is additional to the role played by local agencies and is not possible without contributions from local individuals, families, groups and businesses.
  • Demand for support is increasing and the service is becoming stretched - while contributions from the local community have been reasonably consistent, the demand for support at Christmas has increased by almost 20% over the past five years.
  • The appeal is a unique local initiative - 100% of the funds are sourced and distributed locally.

The City of Mount Gambier supports the Mount Gambier Community Christmas Appeal by acting as a collection point for the agencies. Outside any fees charged by the financial institutions, 100% of your donation is distributed among the participating agencies.

Donations can be made through the following channels:

  1. By phoning (08) 8721 2555 with your credit card details on hand
  2. In person at the City of Mount Gambier Customer Service counter - Civic Centre, 10 Watson Terrace
  3. By sending a cheque made out to 'Mount Gambier Community Christmas Appear' to: PO Box 56 Mount Gambier SA 5290

Any questions regarding the appeal can be made by phoning 8721 2555 or emailing city@mountgambier.sa.gov.au
