Special Children’s Christmas Party
This year, Oak Capital was presented with the opportunity to be a supporter of the Special Children’s Christmas Party as one of its major sponsors, donating $11,000 to the day, and sending a fleet of Oak volunteers to help with set up on the Friday and participate in the Christmas cheer on the Saturday.
The Special Children’s Christmas Parties are the biggest events of their kind in Australia for special needs children and their families. The children invited are children and their families from special circumstances, including serious illnesses, physical and intellectual impairment, domestic violence, or living in underprivileged circumstances.
They’re treated to a day of celebrity stage shows, fun rides, interactive games, plenty of yummy food, face painting and many more fun activities. The highlight of the day is when the children enter Santa’s Toy Room where they are given 2-3 high quality toys to call their own.
Head of People of Culture, “It was so special to be back volunteering in the flesh and impacting and bringing joy to people lives.”
This day is memorable and significant for these families, “I spoke with families, travelling near and far, from Ballarat and Traralgon.”
Families have been attending this special event for years and has been carved as a fond memory across generations.”
