Athlone Christmas Hamper Project

This year Athlone,along with the Christmas Cheerboard, has identified a deserving and appreciative family in our city. We, the staff and students of Athlone School along with our parents, families and community partners are looking for donations of non-perishable foodstuffs in order that we can provide a hamper for these families in time for the Christmas season.

The hope is for the hampers to contain a variety of foods and trimmings for a Christmas meal along with extra food items to last through two weeks.
