This holiday season the Leukaemia Foundation is the charity of choice for the gift wrapping at Myer in Launceston Shopping Mall, and it urgently needs volunteers to help man its wrapping stall from 11 - 24 December.
Volunteers can donate just two hours of their time to take part in this special volunteering opportunity that will involve wrapping gifts, collecting donations and raising awareness of the vital work of the Leukaemia Foundation. More than 238 Tasmanians are projected to be diagnosed with leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma and related blood disorders this year. Christmas can be an extremely difficult time for people living with blood cancers. This is especially true for many Tasmanians who have to relocate to Launceston, Hobart and sometimes even to Melbourne, leaving work, school and family commitments behind, with little or no notice to commence life-saving treatment.
All donations collected from Christmas gift wrapping will help the Leukaemia Foundation deliver free support services to people living with a blood cancer. Last year Myer gift wrapping stations in Tasmania raised over $4,400 in donations.
Volunteers can work in pairs, so sign up now with a friend or family member to spread the holiday cheer and start making a difference today!
To register your interest please contact Kate Baker, Community Relationships Manager of the Leukaemia Foundation in Tasmania on 03 6231 0650 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Leukaemia Foundation is the only national not-for-profit organisation dedicated to the care and cure of patients and families living with leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma and related blood disorders.
The Foundation receives no ongoing government funding and is reliant on the generosity of people within the community to fund our Vision to Cure and Mission to Care.
