Christmas is not always an easy time of year for some. Based in Curl Curl, Stewart House supports almost 2,000 kids annually providing them with a 12-day stay on beach at no cost to their parents or carers. During their stay these kids are provided with dental, optical, hearing and medical screening treatment, as well as educational programs that are designed to develop their social and emotional skills, build self-esteem and improve their overall wellbeing.
A small gift can change a child's life for the better. For Christmas, Stewart House, house over 90 kids of all ages and have a Christmas "Giving Tree" where people from the community donate gifts for the children.
Since 2016, the Huon IT team have provided gifts to the Stewart House "Giving Tree." This December, the team rallied together again to support and donate a variety of gifts to make Christmas a little brighter for children of all ages who are struggling in the community. Most kids often travel from far and wide to take part in the Stewart House Program and many of them are from disadvantaged backgrounds or isolated areas.
