ACON has been supported by Multicultural NSW and partnered with multicultural LGBTQ community groups to provide assistance to members of LGBTQ multicultural communities who are experiencing financial difficulties.

The hampers are distributed at the ACON office or delivered by ACON staff and volunteers.

Pick up (Surry Hills) or Drop off dates: 

Tuesday 7 December and Wednesday 8 December, between 10:00 am to 5:00 pm

The registration will be closed on Friday 4 December.
