WA Veterans facing hardship were touched by the spirit of Christmas with the delivery of 350 Christmas hampers from the RSLWA and its sub-branches over the past few weeks.
Packed full of pantry essentials, the hampers were made possible through the generous donation of $15,000 by the Scottish Masonic Charitable Foundation WA (SMCFWA).
The hampers were collected from Foodbank distribution centres and delivered by RSLWA Sub-Branches to the families identified through the welfare program as needing support.
RSLWA CEO John McCourt said this was the third consecutive year that the charity has donated toward the Hampers for Vets program run by the RSLWA.
“We have been able to make the lives of 350 veterans and their families a little brighter through the delivery of these hampers, which means they will not go hungry and will be able to celebrate Christmas,” Mr McCourt said.
