The region’s State and Federal politicians have again partnered with Rockingham’s Coastal District Care for its annual Christmas Appeal.

State members Mark McGowan (Rockingham), Roger Cook (Kwinana), Paul Papalia (Warnbro) and Reece Whitby (Baldivis) and Federal Member for Brand Madeleine King are again supporting the initiative, which aims to help families and individuals in desperate need of assistance during the festive season.

A spokeswoman for Mr Papalia’s office said the response in previous years had been “very positive” and the community “very generous” in its donations. Members of the public can donate non-perishable food and unwrapped gifts to any of the five members’ electorate offices by December 5, and all are much appreciated.
