A number of CAA member chiropractors are holding a ‘Giving Back’ Day in December, where patients can donate a new, unwrapped toy or non-perishable food items to the value of their consultation, in lieu of payment.
On their nominated day, chiropractors are asking their patients to bring along a new, unwrapped toy or non-perishable food items to the value of their consultation. Even if you don't have an appointment on this day, you may wish to donate in the lead up to this day.
Anyone in the community is invited to make a donation to one of the participating clinics listed below. All donations are warmly welcome.
Christmas time is hard to celebrate when you are doing it tough. When giving, please think of things people would not buy if they were on a tight budget, something special to celebrate Christmas Day.
||Food Item Ideas:
|Board Games||Christmas Puddings and cakes|
|Puzzles||Long life cream and custard|
|Sporting equipment such as tennis racquets and balls,
cricket sets, soccer, football, netball and basketballs
|Gift vouchers (great for older children)||Soft Drinks|
|Leggo||Lollies and chocolates|
The toys and food items will be delivered in time for Christmas to local children and families in the clinic's local area, who might otherwise have very little or nothing on Christmas morning.
Help us to make a difference, thank you.
