Melbourne Victory players recently joined The Smith Family supporters and volunteers at Royal Melbourne Showgrounds in packing food hampers for The Smith Family-s Christmas Appeal.

Victory player and The Smith Family ambassador Matthew Kemp was joined by fellow players Archie Thompson, Steven Pace, Leigh Broxham and Sebastian Ryall, assisting The Smith Family in packing some of the 2200 food hampers which will be distributed to financially disadvantaged families in Victoria over the Christmas period.

The hampers help ensure Australian children do not miss out on the little joys that make Christmas Day special - the sharing of gift and foods with loved ones.

This Christmas The Smith Family will provide more than 10,000 food hampers and 20,000 toy and book packs to families in need across Australia.

The packing and delivery of hampers at Christmas is a Smith Family tradition and is just one of the ways in which the charity helps to overcome disadvantage.

Throughout the year The Smith Family is focused on breaking the cycle of disadvantage using educational programs as the key.

Every dollar donated towards The Smith Family-s Christmas appeal helps create opportunities for disadvantaged children to thrive and develop their potential at school.

Victory fans can support The Smith Family Christmas Appeal by visiting the Victory Shop and placing a book or toy under the Christmas tree or alternatively you can purchase a toy online by clicking here.

Whether small or large, your donation will bring a smile to a child-s face this Christmas.
