BCC Cinemas Capalaba General Manager, Danica Ellis said EVENT was delighted to be able to continue to support The Salvation Army Christmas Appeal.
“It is inspirational to see the collaboration with employees and guests all around Australia coming together to help The Salvation Army bring the joy of Christmas to those that need it most at this special time,” Ms Ellis said.
“Christmas can be a difficult time for people and The Salvation Army aims to bring hope to those who are struggling or lonely in the form of toys and gifts, food hampers and Christmas lunches and dinners. This is one of the busiest times of year for The Salvation Army. Across Australia, the Salvation Army distributes more food vouchers, hampers, gifts and meals than at any other time of year.”
“We would like to encourage those who are able, to embrace the spirit of giving this Christmas,” The Salvation Army’s Leigh Cleave said.
Each year The Salvation Army distributes more than half a million gifts and toys to children, young people, adults and many elderly people living alone. Donations of food, gifts and toys for children of all ages, especially boys and teenagers can be left. Gifts should be new and not wrapped. Guests can also make cash donations to support the appeal when booking online.
