Gift wrapping station for a donation – more giving with your gifts

With Santa’s Academy, the Christmas tree trail, the cruise holiday competition and now the gift-wrapping station, Myer Centre is the place to be this holiday season. It’s more than a place to get your presents – it’s full of festive fun and events for the whole family, this dazzling December.

Share the spirit of the season with families who can’t make it into the Centre, caring for sick little ones. It’s never been easier to help families in need this Christmas.

The best gift of all – time with loved ones

Bring your purchases over to our Ronald McDonald House Charities South Australia pop-up on ground floor and we’ll wrap your presents for a $2 donation. Each parcel will be wrapped in brown paper, finished with a colourful ribbon and Merry Christmas sticker. There are $5 gift tags available for purchase and Christmas ‘helping hands’ to hang on the tree for an additional $5, $10 or a desired amount.

It’s a wonderful way to get your gifts wrapped beautifully, save time, and help save lives. The Ronald McDonald House SA team have stated they’re at full capacity all year round, and during Christmas the number of families don’t decrease in the House, so extra donations are more important.

About Ronald McDonald House Charities SA

Ronald McDonald House Charities SA is located on Melbourne Street, North Adelaide and is a short walk to the Women’s and Children’s Hospital. RMHC SA offers a ‘home away from home’, providing free accommodation for families with children dealing with serious illnesses and injuries that are from regional and rural areas of Australia. Often when faced with the devastating news that their child is unwell, families need to make an immediate decision as to where they’re going to stay in order to be close by to the hospital, which can be extremely stressful from a financial perspective. RMHC SA takes the mental load off families who need to decide between paying for accommodation or feeding their families. 

RMHC SA provides essential, free and safe accommodation for families and also provides a learning program so children are not impacted by being away from school. In 2022, 320 families stayed at Ronald McDonald House SA, equating to 15,191 nights. 

The money raised at the Myer Centre gift-wrapping stand will go towards providing essential services for the families like accommodation, and food. One night of accommodation per family costs $160.
