The appeal has received a major boost with an $8000 donation of food items from Coles customers and thousands of dollars of Coles gift cards. 

The donation will provide a helping hand to battling families needing a helping hand this winter. The appeal supports Uniting Ballarat, Anglicare, the Salvation Army and St Vincent de Paul Society.

Coles Peel Street, Victoria Street and Sebastopol participated in the donation project.
