Mayor throws support behind Salvos’ Christmas appeal


Christmas will come early for struggling Lake Macquarie families this weekend as the Salvation Army hands out more than 150 festive hampers from its Eastlakes centre at Belmont.

 

Lake Macquarie Mayor Cr Kay Fraser threw her support behind the Lake Mac instalment of the Salvos’ annual Christmas appeal, which provides more than 30,000 hampers and hands out more than 500,000 gifts to families nationally.

“The Salvation Army does so much to support people in need in our community – not just in Lake Macquarie but throughout Australia,” Cr Fraser said.

“This has been a difficult year for so many families, which makes the services that organisations like the Salvos provide all the more important.”
