A Merry Vinnies Christmas


A Merry Vinnies Christmas offers a shopping style experience to parents and families looking for assistance over the December period. This means giving people the dignity, ownership and choice over what they receive from us.

The Vinnies office will transform into a mini toy shop, where families can choose what presents they want for their children.
