A not-for-profit volunteer group is again looking to ease the load for low-income families this holiday season, in hopes of allowing the true meaning of Christmas to shine through.

Bloodwood Tree has again teamed up with resources and retail giants to help struggling Hedland community members this Christmas, on the back of last year’s success.

The group distributes Christmas gifts and vouchers to needy families and last year helped 170 individuals, 54 families and 192 children.

Bloodwood Tree chief executive Kelly Howlett said the organisation was on track to repeat the success of last year, thanks to help from local community groups and businesses.

K-Mart, Coles, Roy Hill and Fortescue Metal Group were among the contributors of the program this year.
