Care goes beyond the hospital

WITH a little help, 15 families in need are sure to have a great Christmas this year.

The Mater Hospital Mercy linen and food service staff donated presents and food for the families who were identified by St Vincent De Paul as families in need.

This year, the families are a combination of local and refugee families who have relocated to Rockhampton.

Each year all departments in the hospital adopt a particular family and the staff gathers presents and essentials for the family they have adopted.

The large hampers of goodies are handed over to St Vincent De Paul at what has now become a traditional gifting ceremony at the hospital.

St Vincent De Paul distribute the hampers to the families prior to Christmas.
