Christmas 4 Kids (C4K) is Hands of Hope’s iconic annual event held in December every year to bless kids and families in the south-west suburbs of Brisbane, particularly lower income families.
Hundreds of people flood into Unidus Community Centre campus for Christmas 4 Kids, themed Around the World. Kids were well entertained with a wide variety of activities for every age, including laser tag, jumping castle, fishing games, shoot the cans, pin the llama, tic-tac-toe and memory games.
A highlight of C4K was the musical, which portrayed the theme of true joy versus non-lasting joy, an apt theme for the season of festivities. For the first time, families were offered a choice of food from 4 food stalls, as opposed to only one type of food in previous years. Also, over 30 hampers were given out to families, whether during the lucky draw or personally in their homes. These hampers were kind donations from politicians and members of the church. All in all, it was a fun-filled, love-filled day, with an atmosphere of joy.
