Abel McGrath backs the The Smith Family Toy & Book appeal

THE season of giving will soon be here and Abel McGrath – The Property People Claremont is asking the community to join it and support The Smith Family Toy & Book appeal.

The team has supported the appeal for the past two years.

“We used to hold a standard Secret Santa, but decided it would be much nicer if we could give back to the community,” office manager Kate Jones said.

“The Toy & Book Appeal had a similar feel to the Secret Santa and it felt like a more tangible way of giving.

“It’s a really special time in the office and our staff really take it on board and enjoy going out and finding something special to give to the kids.

“For the past two years we have focused on in-house donations, but this year thought we would expand and be a drop-off point for others in the community who would love to get involved.”

Ms Jones said people who wanted to support the appeal could visit The Smith Family website for some gift ideas.

“There are a number of suggestions for each age group listed,” she said.

“The gifts need to be fun, versatile, activity-based, long- lasting, educational or active.”

Donations can be made at Abel McGrath Claremont. 303 Stirling Highway, Claremont, until December 7. n
