Stuff the Bus is all about placing dignity on families who are struggling at Christmas. Stuff the Bus is Hillsong’s Christmas gift to our community, providing families with a beautiful food hamper and presents for parents to give their children on Christmas Day.

This Christmas we are inviting everyone to shop in our online store!

Christmas Hampers

Christmas hamper items include christmas pudding, long-life custard, chocolates, sparkling apple juice plus other basic grocery items. All items are available to purchase individually from as little as $1.

Toy Packs

In collaboration with our partners, we are making sure that each child receives an appropriate gift pack for their age. This might include scooters, skateboards, games, puzzles, books, building blocks, dolls and gift vouchers. All toys are available to purchase individually from as little as $2.

In 2017, Stuff the Bus was able to contribute over 13,800 individually wrapped toy packs and 6,800 Christmas food hampers to local families as well as to community organisations for their clients.

Get Involved

Join us as we “wrap and pack” these gifts and hampers through one huge wrap and pack party at local Hillsong Church campuses across Australia. It is a great opportunity to bring your children, neighbours, family and friends, and be a part of our Christmas gift to the community.

Our History

Stuff the Bus was first launched in 2010 and has been able to provide almost 90,000 food hampers and toy packs to over 62,000 families across Australia from our local church donations. In 2017, we distributed 13,811 toy packs and 6,873 Christmas hampers through our Hillsong CityCare programs and community partners.

Our partnerships with over 100 community organisations help to facilitate the distribution of these toy packs and food hampers. Wesley Mission, Mission Australia, Settlement Services International, Multicultural Development Australia, The Salvation Army and St Vincent De Paul are some of the key organisations that are involved. We also distribute through schools and major hospitals including the Royal Children’s in Brisbane and Melbourne, Westmead Children’s, Mona Vale, Sydney Adventist, Sydney Children’s and Bear Cottage Hospice.
