The Smith Family has a long and proud association with Christmas. The organisation was founded in 1922 when five businessmen decided to deliver toys to orphans on Christmas Eve. Since then we have grown and developed and what we do has changed to meet the needs of an ever-changing society, but we still deliver toy and book gift packs to families at Christmas.
This gesture of goodwill ensures that all Australian families can come together at Christmas to share gifts and celebrate life. The Smith Family continues to provide opportunities for disadvantaged Australians to participate fully and society and we believe that Christmas is a time when all Australians should feel they belong.
