Does your child enjoy colouring in? The Brisbane Basket Brigade needs help with their gift packaging, and we'd love the artwork of CHAC students to feature on the hampers we're giving out in December. Printed A4 sheets of Christmas images were given out to all Primary students today; however, if you didn't receive them or would like to do some more, all of the sheets can be found here for printing at home.
Each completed sheet will be placed on a gift hamper, so over 500 are needed!
Calling CHAC Musicians!
Across the Packing and Delivery weekend of Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 December, a range of (unpaid) musical performers will entertain our group of volunteers throughout the day in the Tuggerah Centre. If you're a CHAC students and would like to perform (even just one song, or a set), please contact the Brigade's Music Organiser, Jim Bills, on 0414 346 740 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Brisbane Basket Brigade (BBB): Toiletry care packs needed
A friendly reminder that Toiletries Kits for the Brisbane Basket Brigade (BBB) were due today; however, if you would like to purchase any items this weekend, we can accept them until Monday morning.
BBB is a non-profit organisation that works with other local charities to deliver food and gifts to disadvantaged families and the homeless at Christmas. BBB seeks the donation of 100 toiletry care packs, which will be added to baskets delivered to families in the Western Downs and Maranoa region who have been affected by the drought. If you would like to participate, please view the shopping list.
Volunteer on Packing Day
BBB also seeks volunteers to help wrap Christmas gifts, pack food and deliver baskets to nominated families throughout Brisbane on Sunday, 9 December. This is a fantastic opportunity to help others less fortunate and there are a number of volunteer opportunities available. Registration will open in next week. Please subscribe to the BBB newsletter or like them on Facebook to remain updated.
If you have any questions about these initiatives, please email BBB at email@example.com.
