Just add one more item to your list!

Friday 16 December, 2016.

We're asking you to help make Christmas memorable for kids in need, by adding one more item to your list. 

The Salvation Army’s annual Christmas Appeal is collecting donations at Newcastle Permanent’s branches and head office for children who might otherwise not receive gifts this festive season – particularly teenagers.  

Newcastle Permanent CEO, Terry Millett, said that although in full swing already, more donations were needed to provide a gift for 500,000 kids in need. 

The generosity within the community is always astounding, but the need for donations still outweighs the supply, and we’re hoping to keep donations coming in until right before Christmas.

"Each year we see lots of toys for younger kids donated, but it can be slim pickings for the older kids aged from 10-15, so we have lots of ideas that are east additions to your Christmas shopping list."

Gifts suitable for teenagers include clothes, CDs, DVDs, books, gift cards, fashion accessories, sports equipment, beauty products and games. 

The collection will run until Wednesday, 21 December and donation boxes are in all Newcastle Permanent branches and our head office.
