Thank you for your interest in registering for the Koori Curriculum Christmas Drive.
The Koori Curriculum has been facilitating the drive for the past 4 years in partnership with Petersham TAFE. Each year we put a call out to our early childhood community to donate gifts and food hamper items to make Christmas a little merrier for families struggling in community.
Who receives the donations?
We collect items generally for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families, however we usually receive such an influx that we support as many families as possible.
What do we collect?
We ask that you collect non perishable food hamper items that could be grouped together to create a meal.
We would love:
- Pasta and Pasta Sauce
- Rice and Stir Fry Sauce
- Canned fruit and veg
- Cake and pancake mix
- Biscuits and Chips
We also collect Christmas gifts for 0-10 years olds. There are no specifications for toys but we ask that all donations are new and not used. Please do not wrap gifts before donating as we need to check all items before they are gifted.
Where do we drop off?
You will need to drop off your gifts to Petersham TAFE Childhood Education Building B, Level 1 Room B1.2 Crystal St Petersham between the hours of 9-5pm from November 30th and December 4th. We are not able to pick donations up from services.
Do we need anything extra?
- We are not a registered charity so we therefore can't provide a receipt for any cash donations. We would prefer Coles or Woolworths vouchers instead to top up food hamper items.
- We are are always appreciative of gift bags and tags
We ask that you register your commitment to collect donations as we need to anticipate the volume that we'll be receiving to accurately estimate the number of families that we can support.
