2021 has been another tough year with regulations and a dangerously competitive rental market forcing those who were already struggling into even more dangerous situations.
The Mackay Women's Services does it's best to help women and families struggling in the Mackay Region and this Christmas Star 101.9 is teaming up with them to help provide some Christmas Cheer with the annual Hamper Drive.
We are asking families, schools and businesses to chip in with whatever they can to help deliver hampers to the Women's Centre to help those in need.
Whether it's a bunch of hampers or just one that your family is able to fill, we are asking everyone to dig deep this Christmas!
You can buy a cheap washing basket and fill it with long life food, toys and Christmas cheer and deliver it to the Mackay Women's Centre at 418A Shakespeare St, West Mackay QLD 4740.
If you're wandering exactly what to include here's a list:
Long life milk, pasta and pasta sauce, 2 Minute Noodles, biscuits, Christmas Bon Bons, custard, jelly, pudding or cake, tinned fruit, tinned vegetables, tuna, taco kit, lollies, crisps, tea and sugar, plus toys for small kids, teenagers and mums.
