Red Bag Appeal

A joyful Christmas is in the Bag

For thousands of families and individuals across Queensland, Christmas will pass unremarked and uncelebrated. After paying for rent and basic utilities, many of these families are barely getting by, with nothing left over for a Christmas meal.

Wesley Mission Queensland (WMQ) is looking for your help to collect non-perishable food items and Christmas treats to deliver 6,000+ Red Bags full of cheer to families facing homelessness and isolation.

You can now collect Red Bags from various WMQ centres and corporate supporters around South East Queensland. Alternatively, you can register your interest online and we can deliver them directly to you. You will be providing a Christmas celebration in a bag to families, children and individuals who would otherwise miss out on the joy of Christmas.
