Now that 2022 has come to a close, it's time to look back on the success and impact of VACCA's Christmas Appeal. We would like to express our immense gratitude to all of those who donated to the appeal. Thanks to your generosity, we were able to raise $126,760 to support Aboriginal children in care and give them the magical Christmas they deserved. We received an incredibly high volume of donations from our 963 donors, smashing our expectations and the record from last year's appeal.
We were overwhelmed by the outpouring of support and generosity from our donors. Despite the challenges and difficulties that many have faced in the past year, you found a way to give back and make a difference in the lives of those in need. Your donations helped us to put over 3000 presents under trees and Christmas lunches on the tables of 2,500 children who might otherwise have gone without this holiday season. Your generosity is a testament to the kindness and compassion that exists in our community, we are thankful to have you as a part of it.
We would also like to thank the following organisations for their contributions: Plenary Group, Toyota Fleet Management, GML Fleet Management, The Department of Premier and Cabinet, The Department of Treasury and Finance, The Department of Justice and Community Safety, Kinetic, RMIT Ngarara Willim, Essendon Football Club, Whitelion, Suburban Rail Loop, Ashurst, Recoveries Corp Group and Better Place Australia.
