We like getting involved and this festive season we're sharing community spirit.
At Unitywater, we value our place in the communities we serve and our commitment is to help keep them healthy.
Throughout December we're putting our Christmas spirit into building even stronger ties with communities by supporting a number of wonderful initiatives.
This Christmas you'll find our people out and about in our beautiful region, lending a hand and sharing community spirit.
uVolunteer - spreading festive cheer
Throughout December our wonderful team members will be out in the community, spreading the festive cheers in lots of different ways.
They will be assisting with a number of community initiatives, from gift wrapping hampers for vulnerable people in the community to supporting dinners for the homeless on Christmas Eve.
Christmas appeal for women's refuges
Our teams are working together to collect Christmas hampers for individual families in women’s refuges across our region.
Each collected hamper will be given to the families so they have something lovely to open on Christmas morning.
We are aiming to provide wonderful hampers for 13 families this year thanks to the generosity of our people.
Christmas Eve dinner and Christmas-to-your-door
Christmas can be a lonely and difficult time for some people in our communities. This year Unitywater is supporting Hope Within Reach, a wonderful organisation committed to providing hope and showing kindness to some of the most vulnerable people in the community.
Our support will assist in providing a Christmas Eve dinner for homeless and vulnerable people at Cotton Tree Park, Sunshine Coast. Volunteers will come together to spread festive joy at this wonderful event and Santa may even pop along to say hello (or ho, ho, ho) to the kids before his busy night ahead.
We will also support Hope Within Reach with a Christmas-to-your-door campaign, where an army of volunteers visit individual homes and people across Caboolture and Maroochydore on Christmas Day, taking gifts to each of them and more importantly having a chat to make them feel connected.
Water on Tap
The Water on Tap van is in hot demand for a number of wonderful events across Moreton Bay, Noosa and Sunshine Coast this December.
We’re attending 10 Christmas events, and our volunteers will be at some, spreading festive joy and encouraging people to stay hydrated with reusable water bottles (to avoid use of single use plastic).
If you see us at an event, pop by and say hello and grab yourself a refreshing bottle of chilled water from the tap.
