2016 Craft Packs
Late in 2016 a set of craft packs were assembled to be delivered to families in need of extra support. The families that received the packages were very varied from families who had come to the ACROSS service for some extra support with their parenting, some refugee families who find holidays hard to fill up, to children who are currently living out of their family homes and the packages brought a bit of extra joy to their holidays and some ownership over a box of craft activities that they may have never owned before.
