The Christmas Tree in the Main Hall of Urrbrae House is once again a “Giving tree” (collection point) for toys and books for The Smith Family’s Toy and Book Appeal at the University of Adelaide’s Waite Campus.

By donating a toy or book you have the opportunity to bring a smile to a disadvantaged child’s face this Christmas. Sadly, thousands of Australian kids will go without receiving a gift this holiday season simply because their families can’t afford it.

If you would like to make a difference, new toys and books for children aged 0-12 years can be left under the tree during visitor opening hours 10am to 4pm on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday until Thursday, 7 December 2017.

Gifts should be unwrapped and no bigger than the size of a backpack. If a toy needs batteries to operate, please include some batteries. The Smith Family has a shortage of gifts for children aged 9-12 years so donations for this age group are especially welcome.

If you have any queries about the suitability of donating a particular toy, queries can be directed to Lynette Zeitz lynette.zeitz@adelaide.edu.au or phone 8313 7425.

The last day to leave your gift under our tree is: THURSDAY, 7 DECEMBER 2017.
