Deliver joy to fellow Casey residents this Christmas and support locals in need who are doing it tough and need a little help over the festive period.
Here’s how you can help:
Donate non perishable items, toiletries and unwrapped toys to locals in need. Just drop them off at your local library.
Do you have a lost or damaged library item? Deliver joy by making a donation to one of the nominated local charities and we will waive any charges.
