FAQ: Giving Tree Appeal

Who benefits from the Giving Tree Appeal?

CatholicCare Victoria’s vision is for a stronger, more inclusive society - where everyone can reach their potential and live life to the full.

Each year we support over 25,000 people across Victoria. The Giving Tree Appeal supports the clients and programs of CatholicCare. We deliver services throughout Victoria.

This year we aim to distribute 500 food hampers to the most vulnerable individuals and families in our communities. The funds raised beyond the need for hampers will enable CatholicCare Victoria to continue providing counselling and mental health programs, employment help, affordable housing, support for separating families, refugee and asylum seeker help, specialised support for children and teens, pastoral care, crisis help, homelessness and advocacy support, and a variety of courses helping to strengthen relationships and wellbeing.
