Toys 'n' Tucker is an incredible way for you to share the joy of Christmas with people in need!

But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.” Luke 2:10

What’s it all about?

Christmas is a special time – a time to be filled with the joy of Christ and thanksgiving for his birth. Toys ‘n’ Tucker, an initiative of Anglicare Sydney, aims to share the joy of Christmas by providing food and gifts for those who would otherwise go without. We believe that Christmas is a time to give, to share and to be a blessing to those in our community who need it most.

Who can be involved?

Registrations are open to all churches, schools, businesses and community groups in the greater Sydney and Illawarra areas. Toys ‘n’ Tucker can be run by a group of any size, any shape or any ability.

Where does it go?

All donations go straight to the Anglicare Warehouse where they are sorted and packed, ready to be distributed. The sorting and packing process is carried out by teams of dedicated volunteers from churches, schools and businesses. The food hampers and gift parcels are then distributed through Anglicare's Emergency Relief and Family Support programs which assist thousands in our community who would otherwise go without.
