TARGET and UnitingCare have launched their Giving Box Appeal and placed a giving box outside the Park Beach Plaza outlet so generous shoppers can leave an unwrapped gift or take a bauble gift tag so they can make a donation at the register.
The appeal which runs until Christmas Eve has distributed more than 1.7 million gifts over the past 23 years.
More than 26,000 families benefitted from the appeal last year, and this year organisers hope to collect 100,000 gifts to support 60,000 Australian families.
Local Uniting Care co-ordinator Joan Howlett is hoping locals dig deep.
"There are many families in our community who are going to find it really tough to provide gifts for their children this year," Joan said.
"We rely on fellow locals to dig deep, so please support our appeal at Target Coffs Harbour. We make sure that all donated gifts go to local families."
