For the third year in a row the AMC WA team sponsored the WA Special Children’s Christmas Party (WASCCP) and this year we took a hands on approach by volunteering during the event to experience what a difference our donation was making.
The WASCCP is held every year on behalf of the Make a Wish Foundation and caters to over 3000 families living with young children affected by terminal illnesses, physical/intellectual impairment, or living in under privileged circumstances.
The expressions on the kids’ faces when they saw their favourite movie characters like Captain America and Aisla from Frozen was heart-warming and to even top it off Santa arrived on a Harley Davidson! AMC staff were privileged enough to help out in ‘Santa’s Cave’ where kids were individually greeted and lead to various stations where they got to pick 3-4 toys each.
The event was a great success and was a rewarding experience to be involved with. Next year, we plan to make a bigger contribution and get even more people involved on the day. If you too would like to support the Perth Special Children’s Christmas Party then please direct your donation to the Make a Wish Foundation.
