Christmas Project 2023

Food hampers and toys for families and individuals who cannot afford to celebrate Christmas.
December 17, 2023

The Christmas Project has been successfully operating since 2002. In 2022 the Christmas Project provided 560 hampers to families and individuals so they could celebrate Christmas with food for a Christmas lunch or dinner as well as age appropriate toys and gifts for children up to 15 years of age. The families come mainly from the Newlife Care support network and from 45 agencies that provide support for people in need in the local Gold Coast community.

Christmas hampers include hams, Christmas puddings, vegetables, snacks and dessert. The gifts range from toys of all types and sizes, skateboards, soft toys, dolls, toy cars, puzzles and games.

The Christmas Project is funded by donations. Because of generous organisations and individuals we are able to provide the contents of food hampers and toys. Each year a team of generous volunteers assist with sorting, unpacking, packing, shopping, documenting and cleaning up.

To support this mission, you can donate your time, gifts or purchase a food hamper for $60. For more information about how you can get involved, please contact our office on 07 5593 3262 (Monday to Friday 9:00am – 4:00pm), at the information desk on Sunday or email


Toy and Gift Donations for children and adults can be dropped off at Newlife Reception, 4 Greenwich Court, Robina 4226
