FULL LISTS: Adopt a Family for Christmas Appeal 2020

FOR MOST, the holiday season typically brings with it an abundance of joy, gifts and special memories with loved ones.

Sadly, some families across Gladstone experience a Christmas far different from most - financial hardship or other difficulties that dampen the festive cheer.

The devastating impacts of coronavirus on the local community has, without doubt, only heightened stresses placed on already struggling families.

This year, The Observer's Adopt a Family for Christmas Appeal returns, in partnership with local charities, to help identify families in need that you can "adopt" by donating gifts, hampers or food.

READ: How you can help a local family in need this Christmas

Until December 11, you will find our family lists on this page.

You will then be able to select the family you'd like to adopt and contact the charity listed to find out how you can make Christmas truly memorable for these people in our community.
