Empower Giving Tree

Thank you for partnering with us in our 2020 Christmas Appeal!

We are pleased to announce that we were able to donate over 5000 gifts to children in need. Thank you for your generosity!

Every year, Empower Australia partners with local charities in our communities to provide Christmas gifts to children who would otherwise go without. These children and teenagers are considered vulnerable due to circumstances such as: having one or both parents in prison, being affected by homelessness, escaping domestic violence or belonging to a family that is experiencing financial hardship. The donated gifts are distributed through a number of esteemed charities that we are proud to be partnered with.

there are two ways YOU can get involved
