Thanks to the support of volunteers and the generosity of Westfield, $32,000 was raised for Therapy Focus’ GIVE Program as a result of gift wrapping at Westfield shopping centres over the Christmas period.
More than $16,000 was raised by gift wrapping stations at Westfield Innaloo, Carousel and Whitford City shopping centres, with volunteers wrapping shoppers’ gifts for $2 each. Westfield then generously matched the total funds raised dollar for dollar, bringing the total donation to $32,000.
The funds have been contributed to Therapy Focus’s GIVE Program, which supports independence, participation and social inclusion of people with disabilities and their families
Therapy Focus Events & Volunteer Coordinator, Megan Davis attributes the amazing result to the 90 dedicated volunteers who donated their time to man the gift wrapping stations throughout the festive season.
“We are lucky to have so many volunteers support our organisation, especially at such a busy time of the year,” Megan said.
“Without volunteers and the continued generosity of our partner, Westfield, we wouldn’t have been able to achieve such a fantastic result. Thank you to all who helped or donated to the cause.”
