Christmas time can be a challenging time of year for some families. Least of all for those who struggle to make ends meet and this year has proven to be extra challenging for many in our region.   

Shoalhaven City Council is encouraging the community to donate to the annual Mayor’s Giving Box this festive season. The annual charity campaign is a partnership between Shoalhaven City Council and Stockland Nowra Shopping Centre.   

Donated presents and funds are distributed to local charities in the Shoalhaven. This year the charities include Cullunghutti Aboriginal Child and Family Centre, Lyrebird Preschool, Clipper Road Children's Centre and Salt Ministries. 

Unwrapped presents can be dropped off at the Mayor’s Giving Box, in the Stockland Nowra Shopping Centre or at Council's Nowra City Administration Building. Online donations will also be accepted via the GIVIT platform.   

A small gift can go a long way to giving a little joy to someone in need this Christmas time. For more details or to donate online Council’s website.
