Ozchild 2017 Wishing Tree
For the third year running, Wantirna Community Bank® branch has brought joy to disadvantaged and vulnerable kids at Christmas,
supporting the 2017 Ozchild Wishing Tree Christmas Gift Appeal.
OzChild’s Wishing Tree Appeal helps connect caring organisations, clubs, businesses and individuals with these at-risk and vulnerable children. Tags are provided to community focused organisations, like us, describing a child’s age and Christmas wishes. Participants then return an appropriate gift for that child to the branch.
These kids do it tough. In almost every case they’ve come into OzChild’s care as the result of a Child Protection Order because of exposure to abuse, chronic neglect, family violence, substance misuse and more.
Every year OzChild works with 6,000 children, young people and their families, making sure that every night more than 300 children have a safe roof over their heads. There’s always a lot of work for OzChild, protecting kids, healing trauma and rebuilding families. A lot of kids still have a long way to go.
Thanks to the generosity of our customers, staff and the local community, Wantirna Community Bank® branch provided
over 90 gifts, for OzChild’s children and young people as part of the OzChild 2017 Wishing Tree Christmas Gift Appeal.
Thank you for the support!
