Annually, the St Vincent de Paul Society assists over 600,000 Victorians - significantly more than any other state.
This Christmas, Bendigo residents can be part of the movement by placing presents under the Bendigo Advertiser's Christmas tree.
The gifts will go directly to the charity and will form part of the Vinnies Christmas packs for those in need.
A group of volunteers will organise the gifts to cater for different families and their interests - because everyone deserves something they love.
Each family that comes to collect their Christmas gift packs will also be offered supermarket food vouchers to get them through the Christmas period.
Gift donations for both children and adults are welcomed under our tree at 67-71 Williamson Street, Bendigo VIC 3550.
Financial donations can also be made to Vinnies at online vinnies.org.au/donate or by calling 131812.
