After another successful campaign last year and interest from the community, YMCA Ballarat are again assembling "Boxes of Joy" to help brighten Christmas time for young people experiencing disadvantage. Items should be new, small enough to fit in a shoe box and encourage play, activity, wellbeing or interaction. As they receive many requests from agencies for gifts for teenagers - small personal items for older children and teens are especially appreciated. Drop donations in by Thursday 5th December 2019 to: ​YMCA Ballarat, Barkly Square, 25-39 Barkly Street, Ballarat.  Open 9.00am - 5.00pm, Monday - Friday more info here
