The spirit of Christmas is strong in one Tweed Heads law firm.
Stacks The Law Firm has adopted a struggling family for the holiday season as part of the Tweed Daily News’ annual Adopt-A-Family Christmas appeal.
The staff of nine has adopted a family of a mother and her children; three-year-old and eight-year-old boys and a 10-year-old girl, through Lifeline.
They are one of 15 Tweed families to have been supported though the campaign so far.
Toys and other goodies for the family are already flowing through the office doors just days into the campaign.
Office manager Bruce Charge said it was important to remember others at this time of year.
“We try and look at different things we can do to help people out through the year. It’s difficult to do everything as a business, so it’s good to target a few things,” Mr Charge said.
“It’s important to give, especially at this time of year.
“It has been a hard year for a lot of people and helping this family has really reignited the Christmas spirit in our office. By helping them out, it helps us out.”
The Adopt-A-Family appeal is an initiative of the Tweed Daily News’ parent company APN News and Media.
Schools, businesses, individuals and other families are encouraged to get involved in the campaign.
Pick your family, call the charity, then collect non-perishable food and gifts.
