THE St Vincent de Paul Society brings a little Christmas cheer to needy families each year by packing and delivering thousands of food hampers.
So it comes as a shock that this year the society is struggling to meet its target in Brisbane and many families could miss out on their small but much needed treat.
At a time when many families are finding it increasingly difficult to make ends meet due to financial and other hardships, it would be a small sacrifice to support the St Vincent de Paul Society’s Christmas appeal by donating a non-perishable food item to fill someone’s hamper.
