The Greek Welfare Centre is calling on the Greek Australian community to contribute to the Christmas Hamper, that will help Greek Australian families in financial need

The Greek Welfare Centre is calling on the Greek Australian community to demonstrate their filotimo and contribute to the Christmas Hamper, that will help Greek Australian families in financial need.

In a joint effort between the Greek Orthodox Parishes, St John’s Greek Orthodox College, and Oakleigh Grammar, the Greek Welfare Centre has taken the leading role in organising and coordinating an Easter and Christmas Food Hamper and Toy Appeal with the solid support of the Parish Network of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia and the Greek Australian Community of Victoria.

Any non-perishable food items as well as toys, preferably new, are welcome.

Donated items include: oil, pasta, rice, coffee, tea, sugar, biscuits, canned food (including vegetables, meats, hams etc), sauces, flour, spices, snacks etc. Before purchasing or dropping off such items to the collection points, please check the used-by dates and that there are no ruptures to the packaging.

Toys can also be donated, but they need to be new, or at least as close to new as possible in their original packaging to ensure a pleasurable experience for the recipient children.

The non-perishable food and toys can be dropped off at any of the Greek Orthodox churches in Victoria or at St John’s Greek Orthodox College, 21 Railway Place West Preston or at Oakleigh Grammar, 77-81 Willesden Road, Oakleigh or alternatively at the Greek Welfare Centre at the Holy Monastery of ‘Axion Estin’ at 7 Hartington Street, Northcote.

For more information please contact Greek Welfare Centre on (03) 9486 6588.
