A huge thank you to all who donated to this year's Baskets of Joy which has been a joint initiative between the Greater Shepparton City Council, The Community Fund Goulburn Valley and FamilyCare.  We were able to assist over 200 families with food and gifts this festive season. The wonderful food and gifts provided brightened Christmas for many of our local families and showed what a caring  and generous community we are fortunate enough to live in!

FamilyCare Christmas Appeal 2015


The FamilyCare Christmas Appeal started in November and ran until December 21, with the goal of raising funds and collecting donations of vouchers, gifts, food and hampers to make Christmas special for   families in our local community.  Funds donated went directly towards purchasing food items for the hampers.

The baskets of Joy were collected on Monday 14 December—what a fantastic and overwhelming response we have had from the Shepparton Community.  Thanks to all the staff  and Belinda and Bec from COGS who tirelessly drove around Shepparton and surrounds to collect the baskets and to the Community Fund Goulburn Valley for their support with making this happen.


The donations far exceeded any of our expectations and we were able to provide more than enough food and gifts to our families this Christmas.
