Bags of Joy

Thank you

Y Ballarat is super proud to have created 195 Bags of Joy for local young people aged 12-21 for Christmas in 2021. This was only possible via support of some amazingly generous community members, some pretty special businesses and organisations (CMY & City of Ballarat Girl Space, Woolworths, Integra and the Y Services Club to name a few), and an incredible team of Y people and volunteers!
THANK YOU to everyone who supported Bags of Joy. See you in 2022!

About Bags of Joy

In 2015 amazing young woman and Founder of the Bags of Joy campaign, Jessy 19, pitched her Christmas wish to provide shoeboxes filled with gifts for disadvantaged children at Christmas to Y Ballarat. The Y Ballarat team loved Jessy’s idea and the rest is history.

2022 is Bags of Joy’s 8th year providing gifts to young people who may otherwise miss out, the focus will again be 12-21 year olds.
