Maleny Neighbourhood Centre would like to say a huge thank you to all involved in organising and running our 2018 Christmas morning breakfast. The event was well supported with so many generous community members responding to our call for help, whether it was setting up on Christmas eve, volunteering their Christmas morning to serve the community breakfast or clearing up after the event. The volunteers served between 400-450 people breakfast and over 100 presents were given to children who visited Santa that morning and MNC received over a $1,000 in donations on the day.
Thanks to our sponsors Christmas morning breakfast would not be possible without the many generous sponsors who donated food and goods towards the event. These included: IGA, Ron Sharp, Walkers Farms, Saintsational Sausages, Maple Street Meats, Crystal Waters Bakery and Montville Coffee.Also thanks to the wonderful businesses and community organisations or groups that gave to vulnerable families locally through Christmas hampers. This year we gave away 30 hampers!
