Last chance: 'Adopt' a Coast family this Christmas

It's your last chance! The Daily's Adopt a Family appeal closes on Friday.

The participating charities have already reported a great uptake with some having had almost all their families adopted.

It was welcome feedback, especially in a year during which COVID-19 has put additional strain on many households.

The Daily launched the Adopt A Family 2020 campaign last month to connect those who want to help with those who need a helping hand.

This campaign has been running for more than 25 years.

It's a tradition we were determined to maintain in what has been an incredibly difficult year.

Be a charitable soul this Christmas

Community comes together to make Christmas a little brighter

Charities across the Coast, from Caloundra and Nambour to Noosa, listed almost 500 Coast families in need for help this Christmas.

To "adopt" a family contact the charity on the number published with the list of families and register your details.

All hampers are to be delivered to the nominated drop-off points and from there the charities will hand them over to the families in time for Christmas Day.

Hampers can contain non-perishable goods, toys suitable for the ages listed. No alcohol or perishable food can be included.
