An update on this year’s Christmas Tree fundraiser

12 November 2020


2020 has been an extraordinary year and as Victorian’s, we’ve all made sacrifices to keep each other safe. We’ve worked hard to ensure the safety of our OCC community and will continue to do so. While Melbourne’s COVID-19 restrictions are easing, we are going to extend our people-first approach, and unfortunately, our annual Christmas Tree fundraiser will not be held this year.

Buying a tree from our Christmas Tree Fundraiser is an annual tradition for many families, and we know that this is disappointing.

As a disability services organisation, keeping our staff, participants, volunteers and customers safe is always our top priority, and it’s the right decision to make. Social distancing with our Christmas Tree sales will be difficult, and we’d much rather see your smiling faces back in the new year rather than risk you or your loved ones getting ill.  

You can still purchase your fresh Christmas Trees from our supplier, Dandenong Christmas Tree Farm, and we encourage you to do this to support a business who has supported us over many years. www.dandenongchristmastreefarm.com.au

Here’s another way to help us:

The Christmas Tree fundraiser is an important part of our fundraising efforts, and the proceeds go towards helping us support people for things that the NDIS does not cover. If you’d still like to help us raise funds, please head to our website here.

Our plan is to be back bigger and stronger next year, continuing to spread Christmas cheer and we hope we get to see you then.

In the meantime, we wish you and your loved ones a safe and healthy Christmas and New Year.
