Directions continues annual Christmas hamper tradition

The team at Directions Workforce Solutions in Northam has continued their annual hamper-giving tradition this year.

The team will deliver Christmas hampers to two local families in need.

The staff at the Northam Directions office began the tradition of donating Christmas hampers to local families in 2014.

The hampers include both festive treats and household essentials that are vital for struggling families in the Wheatbelt.

Directions is thrilled with the contributions of manager Brenda DeAtta and her team Emma Lawrie, Marcelle Kinsey, Bobby Hall and Lydia Ugle.

“We have all donated items that we would like to have at Christmas in the hope of putting smiles on faces and helping families look forward to Christmas,” Ms Ugle said.

Ms Lawrie said the Christmas season can be especially hard on families with children.

“If this hamper makes one family’s holidays a little easier, it’s all worth it.”

Mr Hall said their team sees a lot of people doing it tough from a variety of demographics in the area as they work within the community assisting with employment and career prospects.

As ongoing patrons of the Northam community, they have also helped to implement the Supporting Communities Through Traineeships program, which supplies fully-funded trainees to local not-for-profits for a 12-month period.

The program is designed to help selected charities continue their invaluable work while also supporting local community members through a Business Administration traineeship.

Northam’s Share and Care Community Services Group were the first recipients in the area to receive a fully-funded trainee.

Directions anticipates a strong future for the Northam community with the support of organisations like Share and Care alongside the support of the local Directions team.
