The Christmas Tree Project brings early Christmas cheer
In its fourth year, the Castlemaine Health Christmas Tree Project is once again delivering the goods, literally, to those in our community who could use a little support this Christmas.
The Christmas Tree Project is a staff run initiative, wonderfully supported by all departments of the hospital involving their collection of quality non- perishable food and toiletries, each October and November. Project coordinator, Lisa Jackson, a theatre recovery nurse at Castlemaine Health says, “once the goods had been collected, members of our staff came together, to sort and pack the goods into hampers, in the hope of spreading a little Christmas cheer to our local community”.
With the outstanding help of our own Castlemaine Housing Service, the hampers are delivered throughout Castlemaine and surrounding areas during December to where they will help to make a positive difference.
Castlemaine Health is not only a provider of excellent health care, but once again affirms its commitment as a provider of community support to people of Castlemaine and surrounding areas. Castlemaine Health and out staff recognise their role within an otherwise strong and supportive local community, and are most grateful to be able to help with the Christmas Tree Project.
“This year we have packed 34 hampers, a large box of toys, and a large box of toiletries from hundreds of individual donations. The goods were of a very high standard and it is a great result and a big thank you must go out to our staff and others who gave generously”.
