Ashfield Mall Wishing Tree Appeal

25 Oct 2023

Give hope where it is needed most this Christmas.

Ashfield Mall and The Rev. Bill Crews Foundation have joined forces this festive season with the Wishing Tree Appeal at Ashfield Mall, which is dedicated to providing support for members of our community who are facing challenges this Christmas.

With the help of special guest Jessica Rowe the Foundation offically launched the Wishing Tree Appeal on Thursday November 16th.  There is still plenty of time to donate gifts for community members in need, the Appeal is running until December 22nd.

The primary goal of the Wishing Tree Appeal is to bring more joy to individuals and families who are going through difficult times during the holiday season. Participating is simple – you can contribute by placing a new gift in the box next to our Wishing Tree at Ashfield Mall, or if you prefer, you can make a monetary donation online.

CHRISTMAS GIFT WRAPPING for a gold coin donation. 💰 You can have your present’s gift wrapped at our gift wrapping station, located next to our Wishing Tree at Ashfield Mall by one of our wonderful Volunteers. All proceeds will be donated to The Rev. Bill Crews Foundation.

Your ongoing support and acts of kindness will have a profound impact on the lives of those in need during this festive season.
