Ipswich Hospital Foundation is working closely with West Moreton Health to discover the areas in need this Christmas to help you direct your Christmas donation to those who need it most.
In addition, throughout December, a festive team of Ipswich Hospital Foundation volunteers will spread Christmas cheer through the Children’s Sunshine Ward and beyond, distributing gifts, reading books and operating a craft station for patients.
If you would like to make a difference, why not make a donation at www.ihfoundation.org.au indicating what area of the health service you’d like to see benefit, OR contribute to the following community campaigners who are directing their gifts to the Ipswich Hospital’s Children’s Sunshine Ward: Ray White’s Little Ray of Giving.
Drop off points are at:
Ray White Ipswich, Brett Smith and Co Solicitors, McNamara & Associates, and Real Property Legal.
Ipswich Kids for Christmas. Drop off at Ipswich Pro Drive Office, 26 Turley Street, Ipswich.
Ipswich Pro Drive Director and Inaugural Christmas Drive Coordinator Dave Cullen said he feels passionate about ensuring children are thought of at Christmas.
“A hospital stay is never something you want to do, and when the kids are fighting to get healthy and parents are feeling hopeless and under stress, it really helps to have those little extras like Christmas gifts,” Mr Cullen said.
“We have an awesome community here in Ipswich and I believe we can all get together and help the Hospital Foundation get what the hospital needs. There are so many folks wanting to give a hand but really not sure how and we hope this will help everyone that uses the Ipswich Hospital.”
