For the third year BCYF are proud partners of the Geelong Giving Tree Appeal 2022.

At Christmas, we invite you to the share joy with our community members who need it more than ever. With cost of living rising, there are families and children and young people in our community who we know have faced come incredibly significant hardships.

From Saturday 12 November, you can donate to the Geelong Giving Tree Appeal.

The Geelong Giving Tree Appeal is run by Bethany Community Support, in partnership with BCYF and The Sexual Assault & Family Violence Centre.

Your donation will be exchanged for gift cards and given to a family or individual nominated by local community support organisations.

Your donation could:

  • be the reason children have presents to find on Christmas morning
  • give a parent/carer their first Christmas present in years
  • put food on the table for a family in need

How you can share joy with your community this Christmas

Run a fundraiser at your business, school, or community group, and donate to the Geelong Giving Tree Appeal between 12 November and 6 December.
