Mark McDonald today had the pleasure of dropping off a carfull of gifts to Instant Neighbour after the huge public response to the Giving Tree Appeal left his constituency office waiting room brimming with festive surprises for vulnerable children.
Instant Neighbour works every year with social work departments and community projects to assist families in challenging circumstances, and who especially struggle during the winter months. The Giving Tree programme involves local businesses and organisations donating office space to give people a tag with a child’s name, age, and gender on it so a suitable gift can be passed on to them.
"A huge thank you to everyone who responded to Giving Tree appeal in my office, the number of gifts donated was phenomenal. A carload of gifts was delivered to Instant Neighbour today to help ensure that some of Aberdeen's most disadavntaged children can still have a special Christmas.
"Thank you all once again for your generosity of spirit."
If you would still like to support the Instant Neighbour Giving Treet Appeal, there is an ongoing call for gifts for young people aged between 13 and 18. Recommended gifts for teens include vouchers for clothing stores, music store, sports stores or department stores.
