Target to make christmas better for UnitingCare

A CLARKSON department store and pop singer Jessica Mauboy are calling on shoppers to donate to UnitingCare this festive season.

Target in Ocean Keys Shopping Centre is collecting donations to help the charity provide food, gifts or temporary accommodation for families in need.

“Christmas is a special time of year – yet it breaks my heart to see so many families who don’t have the luxury to celebrate the special occasion,” Mauboy said.

Shoppers can drop off unwrapped gifts at the layby counter until December 24 or buy a $1 bauble gift tag at the checkout. Target will donate the sale of every bauble to the UnitingCare Christmas Appeal.

Target Ocean Keys store manager Tony Berrington said the appeal aimed to ensure no child missed out on the joy of opening a Christmas present.
