Southern Youth and Family Services residential manager Lisa Bolt was ecstatic to pick up a sack full of Christmas presents from The Fraternity Club recently.
Members, guests and friends have been busy donating gifts under the Fairy Meadow club’s festive tree, as part of its annual Giving Tree Appeal.
Fraternity marketing and events manager Courtney Steltenpool said the response from the club had been overwhelming.
She said the gifts had been distributed in time for Christmas across residential and outreach services for young people and families associated with SYFS.
‘’We hope we can bring a smile to the faces of those who rely on this wonderful not-for-profit charity this Christmas,’’ Ms Steltenpool said.
SYFS services support those who are vulnerable, disadvantaged and homeless, working with young people aged between 12-24 years of age (including youth with young children).
They provide housing, financial assistance and support for youth with drug, alcohol and mental health issues.
SYFS residential manager Lisa Bolt thanked The Fraternity Club for its efforts.
‘’All of the gifts will be distributed among our young people and their families,’’ she said.
