Give a gift at Fairfield libraries this Christmas

Christmas is a time for giving and the Fairfield community has been known to be an extremely charitable bunch over the years.

Those wanting to help make a difference this Christmas can do so by placing gifts under the Christmas Giving Trees set up at Fairfield libraries.

This year, gifts placed under any of the giving trees at Fairfield library branches will be given to new refugees and migrants settling in Fairfield City.

Mayor of Fairfield City Frank Carbone said the aim of the trees is to give many new refugees and migrants settling in Fairfield City a memorable and meaningful Christmas.

“You can leave messages of support and Christmas cards as well as donate new toys, canned food items or other gifts as donations,” Mayor Carbone said.

“By participating in the Christmas Giving Tree you are contributing to making Christmas in Australia a positive experience for more than 3,500 new refugees and migrants who have settled in the area during the past 12 months.”

The initiative was prompted by Fairfield Youth Advisory Committee member Rowena Tran as a way to show support for the new members of our community as they transition to life in Australia.

Community organisation Parents Café – Fairfield Inc will work with the council to distribute the gifts to families of new refugees and migrants attending their Christmas party on Wednesday 28 December.

The Christmas Giving Tree will be at Bonnyrigg, Fairfield, Smithfield, Wetherill Park and Whitlam Libraries until 21 December 2016.
