2020 LES TWENTYMAN FOUNDATION CHRISTMAS
The Les Twentyman Christmas Gift Drive is just around the corner … It will look a little different this year, but UFU members can still get involved!
UFU members have consistently demonstrated their dedication to the community, beyond their work in the fire services. Building upon this, UFU members are respectfully encouraged to get involved in the Les Twentyman Foundation and their 2020 Christmas Drive!
12 Days of Giving – A Covid-19 Christmas Drive
Due to the pandemic, the Les Twentyman Foundation won’t be able to hold their usual Christmas Brunch with hundreds of families and guests. Instead, the LTF will participate in 12 Days of Giving – in the 12 days leading up to Christmas – to deliver gifts to children, teenagers and families in their network within the inner-West and across Greater Melbourne.
Gift ideas (for families):
The United Firefighters Union, through the generosity of the membership, consistently hit the brief in relation to Christmas gifts for the children, teens and families in the LTF network. This year, LTF have respectfully requested gifts that are suitable for families – cook books, outdoor radios, boardgames, pressies for the kids/teens of families, and more.
