Adopt-A-Family hampers arrive at Anglicare
THE first hampers for The Observer's Adopt-A-Family campaign have arrived at Anglicare this week.
Anglicare senior administration officer Sharyn Manitzky said the response so far from businesses and public alike had been fantastic.
She said about 35 families had already been adopted from Anglicare's list.
"There has been a fantastic response and we are expecting we will get inundated by a number of groups," Ms Mantizky said.
But she said there were still 20 people left on Anglicare's list and still more families to be adopted from other charities so she was hoping more people would come on board.
Keen to show they practice what they preach, staff in the Anglicare office have banded together to adopt a family of their own. Ms Manitzky said it was a large family with a mother, father, three boys and three girls.
She said all staff were keen to get involved and they were going to pool donations to go towards purchasing their family a hamper of goodies.
All hampers need to be in to the selected charity by Friday, December 7.
