Bags of Joy is back for its eighth year in 2022!
After creating 195 Bags of Joy as gifts for local young people aged 12-21 who might otherwise miss out at Christmas last year, we are super excited to be back aiming to support even more young people this year!
We are currently seeking donations to help create Bags of Joy. Donations of $2+ are tax deductible [and allow us to offer gift cards to young people
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.
