Christmas is only weeks away, and this year Carrie's Place will be supporting over 180 single/family households with various complexities from domestic and family violence, homelessness or those who are experiencing both. We are supporting children from 0- 19 years of age,both girls and boys, Mums, Dads and Grandparents and we know that it will take a village, so all the assistance and support we can get, will help us deliver hope and joy to many, who need it most.

The donation of gift cards enables our staff to purchase presents for teens, young adults and parents. It is also a good way for us to support those living out of home e.g. living rough,  temporary accommodation, tents etc.

This year we are working with Stockland Greenhills to raise awareness and seek donations for our community adn their families. Stockland Greenhills has also donated 150 Timezone vouchers.

Why not buy a Stockland Gift Cards at Customer Care and drop it in our Carrie's Place donation box. These gift cards will give our staff the means to shop for our clients in a local centre.

Another great idea is to donate movie vouchers  for local cinemas such as Hoyts & Reading.

Additionally gift cards to food outlets, Opal cards or phone credit, these allow teens and young people the ability to enjoy everyday experiences that they may not be able to afford.


12 Days of Christmas Giving Hampers were a great success last year, so we are doing them again. See below for more information and to download the Checklist.

In addition to the Hampers we are calling out for support through donations of Woolworths Simply Groceries vouchers. These vouchers give families the means to purchase their Christmas meal to go with their hamper goodies.

Tenambit Butchery are proudly supporting us this year and you can purchase a Gift card from them. Let them know it's for Carrie's Place and their Team will help you out. We even have a donation box, where you can leave them their for our staff to collect.
