Wesley Mission Queensland is looking for individuals, families, businesses and community groups who are interested in helping us out during December 2019 with gift wrapping at Westfield Chermside Shopping Centre.    The gift wrapping is part of the Red Bag Appeal that gives a helping hand to the 500,000 people who are currently living below the poverty line in our local community.  Your support will give joy, hope and a reason for people to celebrate!

To learn more about the Red Bag Appeal and Wesley Mission Queensland please visit our website.

We will have a number of shifts to fill to cover the gift wrapping station and will need as many reliable volunteers as possible.  Since we will be manning the only wrapping public station in the shopping centre, everyone will be very busy!

We also have limited free car parks available at Wesley Mission Queensland (directly across the road) for the volunteers who will be helping us out for more than 3 hours.  This will save on parking fees.  

As a volunteer with Wesley Mission Queensland, you will be helping us improve the lives of the most vulnerable in our community, and we appreciate your offer to donate your skills and time.

We look forward to hearing from you!
