Cans for Christmas

Cans for Christmas

Rotary's "Cans for Christmas" project is one of its annual Community Programs when Christmas food donations are collected on behalf of Foodbank WA for packaging and distribution to vulnerable Western Australians.

Your local Rotary Clubs are working together with Foodbank WA to collect Cans and Non-Perishable Packaged Food for vulnerable Western Australians between 8am to 1pm on Saturday 5 December 2020.

In previous years, the project has been most successful when conducted house to house collections of the food donations, but owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, Cleanaway have been unable to supply the wheelie bins previously used to collect and transport the food donations to FoodBank WA. Hence this year we are changing the format by conducting the collection of food donations via Drive-by-Drop-in collection points.

Within the immediate project area, we are asking donors to bring their donations of Cans and Non-Perishable Packaged Food to one of three drive-thru drop-off locations, namely:

  • North Cottesloe Primary School, Eric Street, Cottesloe
  • Captain Stirling Hotel Car Park, Nedlands
  • Wembley Sports Park off Selby Street, Jolimont

Financial donations are welcome and may be made direct to Foodbank WA with donors asked to go to "Donate $" and insert "Rotary" in the message line. Reminder that donations of $2.00 and over are tax deductible.

Seven (7) Rotary Clubs are participating in this year's "Cans for Christmas" project:

  • Nedlands Rotary Club
  • Cambridge Rotary Club
  • Crawley Rotary Club
  • Dalkeith Rotary Club
  • Matilda Bay Rotary Club
  • Mosman Park Cottesloe Rotary Club
  • Western Endeavour Rotary Club
