A bucket full of Christmas joy
Christmas is a special time of the year filled with love and joy. Sadly, this is not the case for some people in our community who will spend Christmas alone or are unable to afford extra special food to make it a memorable day for them and their family.
We hope to change this with our 6th Yellow Bucket Christmas Appeal.
This year we aim to fill 300 yellow buckets with special Christmas food and gift them to local people who need a little festive joy.
How can you help?

Donate non-perishable Christmas food that is special/gourmet (such as: boxed or packaged chocolates, nuts, cake/pudding, Christmas sweets, jams and preserves, special crackers and biscuits, Christmas accessories (e.g. napkins) etc.

Donations can be delivered to our YellowBridge offices in Toowoomba at 879 Ruthven Street or 46 Hill Street by Friday 11 December.


All cash donations are gratefully received. They will be used to purchase suitable items. Donate via our online fundraising page here


The buckets of joy will then be hand delivered before Christmas Day to people who we know are in most need.

Thank you for helping us bring joy to those in need this Christmas

And special thanks to our Major Sponsor

A little bit more about our Appeal


The majority of the Christmas food and products are donated by YellowBridge staff, partners and suppliers who have embraced the annual appeal and the opportunity to ‘give back’ to others in their local community.


The emphasis is on Christmas food that is gourmet or special rather than staple food items, which are covered so well by other Christmas appeal initiatives in the region.


Recipients are chosen based on their known need. YellowBridge staff then deliver the hampers prior to Christmas Day to people who either live alone, have a disability or need to know that someone cares. They are also distributed to people nominated by YellowBridge’s peer organisations in the housing, disability, youth and aged services sectors.
