Help disadvantaged families in Banyule this Christmas.
Every year for over 20 years residents and community groups in Banyule have provided quality new gifts, toys and vouchers to local children and families experiencing financial hardship through the Banyule Children’s Gift Appeal. In 2018, close to 400 children who live and go to school in Banyule received gifts, all thanks to community donations.
Back to School
DVCS is the largest provider of education assistance in the local Banyule area. We assist over 380 primary and secondary school aged children with essential school items such as books and stationery, and help for school camps and excursions, school fees and electronic devices.
There has been a lot of research undertaken and growing awareness of the rising costs of education and how this can negatively impact vulnerable children. With increased costs in uniforms, fees, books and materials, camps and the use of information technology devices like laptops and iPads.
The Diamond Valley Gift Appeal aims to support vulnerable and disadvantaged individuals and families at Christmas time through the provision of Christmas Hampers and Children’s Toy Parcels for those who cannot afford them.
In partnership with Diamond Valley Nilllumbik Lions Club we aim to support 100 families in the Nillumbik area in 2019.
