Every year the Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP), in collaboration with other industry associations, spend their Christmas Party differently. Rather than holding the standard Christmas Party the AIP Members are invited to be a part of something very special; packing 1000x Family Hampers and 300x Ladies Hampers which are given to Foodbank to help those in need during the holiday season.
Over the last seven years, our industry has packed over 6500 hampers to the value of in excess of $700,000 for people in need, with all of the items either donated, or the funds raised by the Association and the wider industry. The AIP invites you, your staff, colleagues and families to come and help us pack the hampers on the 7 of December. All ages are invited to attend this special event with the oldest volunteer to date being 85 and the youngest 5. Help us make a difference in someone else’s life.
This year, the AIP packing day will be running from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. on Friday 7 December at Eagle Farm Race Track - Function Area 230 Lancaster Road, Ascot 4007
