Yesterday we received a donation of toys from Julie, a woman who had a great story we wanted to share.
The mother of four had once received support from Anglican Family Care when her son, who is now 25, was a newborn.
Over twenty years ago, Julie's son received a gift from us which he still has today because it meant so much to him. When Julie was spring cleaning, she went to throw out the gift when her son reminded her "You can't throw that out, Anglican Family Care gave that to me".
Julie and her children have been donating toys to Anglican Family Care ever since as a way to give back, as they understand first hand the struggles that come with Christmas. Julie said "It's always been important to me that my kids give back and I'm pleased to know that this is something I believe they will do their whole life"
Over the past few days we have been showcasing our lovely supporters who have so generously donated toys and gifts. These toys will impact young children, not just at Christmas but throughout their life.
