Many families across the inner west are facing a tough Christmas and I am collecting donations of new, unwrapped toys to help make sure 2020 ends on a high for every child.

Please drop off donations to my office or at one of the mobile collection points over the next few weeks. Together, we can make a real difference for local kids and families.

This year, all donations will be made to AbSec – the peak organisation supporting Aboriginal children, young people, families and communities impacted by the child protection system.


What can be donated?

New, unwrapped toys for any age.


When are donations being accepted?
