Gift donations have changed since 2018

Thank you for considering to donate gifts to Mission Australia however please note that we will not be accepting donations of gifts this year.

Read more below.


What has changed?

As part of our ongoing review and improvement of Christmas Lunch in the Park, we have made changes to the format of gifts given to Children who attend the event.

While every child will still receive a present from Santa, the process of obtaining, sorting, wrapping and managing gifts has been re-developed to ensure that:

  • gifts are fair and balanced between every child
  • operational costs related to gifts are minimised, seeing funds made available to offer support services on the day as well as additional items being included in adult care packs
  • we are able to re-distribute left over gifts quickly to those in need in our community.

As a result of these changes, we no longer require gift donations for the event and thank you for your understanding.


To assist you find a good home for your items, we have listed organisations accepting gift donations at the bottom of this page. 

How else can you help?

The event relies on the generosity of the Perth community to make it happen.
