AVID Property Group has kicked off a month-long Christmas Gift Drive across their Queensland residential communities, encouraging residents to donate gifts in support of Act for Kids.
Christmas is meant to be a time for joy and connection, but for kids and families doing it tough, it can be especially bleak. AVID Property Group (AVID) and The Property Industry Foundation have teamed up for a Christmas Gift Drive for charity Act for Kids, giving vulnerable kids a special holiday surprise.
“We’d encourage anyone who can to purchase a gift and pop it under their local AVID giving tree to help make this holiday season a little brighter for children and families who need it.”
Anthony Demiris, AVID
From Monday 6 November until Saturday 9 December, Christmas giving trees will be on display at select AVID Queensland communities to encourage residents and locals to donate gifts for children who have experienced or are vulnerable to abuse and neglect.
CEO of Act for Kids Dr Katrina Lines is thrilled to partner with AVID and the Property Industry Foundation to brighten the lives of needy children and their families. “We know that Australian families have faced a tough year with cost-of-living pressures and many children will not experience the joy of finding presents under a Christmas tree,” Dr Lines said. “We’re incredibly grateful for AVID and the Property Industry Foundation’s generous donation of Christmas gifts, which we will give to the many children we have helped this year.”
“We are so pleased to be able to continue our relationship with Act for Kids with the help of our corporate partner AVID – to help put a smile on those who would have otherwise gone without this Christmas,”
Antoinette Rusby-Perera, Property Industry Foundation Queensland State Manager.
AVID General Manager Queensland Anthony Demiris welcomed the opportunity to call on its residents and network to support those most vulnerable this Christmas. “This year’s Christmas Gift Drive provides a great opportunity for our residents to back an important organisation but more specifically support children during a time that is special for many families,” Mr Demiris said. “We’d encourage anyone who can to purchase a gift and pop it under their local AVID giving tree to help make this holiday season a little brighter for children and families who need it.”
Christmas Giving Trees will be located at the following AVID Queensland communities Sales & Information Centre’s for residents and locals to donate gifts.
