Many people use this as their shopping list in the lead up to Christmas. You can download a copy here.

In addition to a tasty hamper, we also organise Christmas gifts for our families.  These are often the only gifts they receive, and we try to match gifts to recipients wherever possible.  If you’d like to donate a Christmas gift, we have suggestions based on age.

If you, your club, or workplace would like to participate, simply email us here or you can join the Facebook group setup by some of our contributors here.

Happy to participate, but can’t get into Surfers Paradise? Don’t worry, we have a number of volunteers this year who are happy to collect the Hampers from you. If you’re organising a Hamper and need us to collect it from you, just email us here so we can plan a collection time closer to December.

We are aiming to raise enough money to give us a regular funding base to help expand our services. Our goal is to reach 100 people donating a regular amount of at least $10 a month – which would give us $12,000 a year towards helping the homeless and those in need on the Gold Coast.

You can make a regular donation through PayPal.

We are calling on the community for donations over $100 as we need $1.5 million to achieve this goal.

Many schools and local businesses assist by running a collection at their school or workplace, to collect donations of tinned and non-perishable food, as well as other items needed by St. John’s Crisis Centre.

To organise this with the help of our volunteers, please contact our administration office.

Donations can be made at St. John’s Drop-In Centre, 36 Hamilton Avenue Surfers Paradise, Monday to Friday between 9am and 12pm.

For larger donations, we can also organise to collect items.
