Christmas with Dignity caps off remarkable year

After a tough year for everyone, Northern Sydney Local Health District’s staff made an incredible impact for those who are less fortunate. 

Partnering with Dignity, the district’s workplace giving partner, NSLHD contributed to Dignity’s Christmas appeal which in total produced more than 500 Christmas hampers, which is 100 more than 2020.

Dignity will deliver the hampers and gifts across the district thanks to the tremendous support from district staff via the collection of gift Christmas Trees at hospital locations.

In addition to these donations, more than 3700 meals and 200 hampers were provided between July and December to around 700 local residents who were at risk of homelessness as part of the food relief program.

The meals were provided in collaboration with Vinnies and The Dish in Hornsby, as well as being delivered to referred individuals and families in the district’s local government areas.

These meals and hampers were delivered with funds donated by staff who opted in to make a meaningful difference straight from their pay checks. All donations are taken out of your pay before it is taxed and does not affect gross income or other calculations, such as superannuation guarantee payments or Fringe Benefits Tax (FBT).

This year, people already at risk of homelessness have continued to be pushed closer to the edge and the need for food relief continues to be great and we are so thankful for the ongoing support of the staff of NSLHD which has meant we have been able to work towards meeting this need in Northern Sydney.

“The generous donations made to our Christmas with Dignity campaign are currently being delivered to people in the community who are facing financial hardship and at risk of homelessness. On behalf of Dignity, thank you to everyone who has donated.”
