  • Tea, coffee, powdered beverages, drinking chocolate, Milo, soup packets
  • Chocolates, cookies, biscuits, crackers, lollies, edible stocking fillers
  • Shortbread, mince pies, Christmas cake, Christmas puddings
  • Breakfast cereal, muesli bars, Nutella, cream cheese, Vegemite, etc.
  • Any other special non-perishable "luxury" food you would buy as treats for yourself or your family this Christmas

Please do not donate aclohol or beverages in glass bottles.

We sincerely appreciate any donations of these items, no matter how big or small, as they will be packed into hampers by our volunteers for our community's most vulnerable people.

Cash or goods can be dropped into the Centre during our Open Hours. Each year several local businesses and organisations also offer their premises as 'drop-off' points for grocery collection.

Frankston Library is a collection point for food donations during the appeal. Monetary donations can be dropped into the agency during open hours, you can donate online through this website or post a cheque to Frankston Community Appeal, Community Support Frankston, 35 Beach Street Frankston.
