THE Kids in Care Christmas Appeal 2012 is on again and Harvey Norman in Kingaroy is right behind the worthwhile project.

Showing their personal concern the staff and customers are all donating items into a large basket.

Inside the store is a large Christmas tree, located right near Santa's throne where people can leave a gift.

The gifts will go to children and young people living in foster, kinship and residential care in the South Burnett.

Harvey Norman will also donate suitable gifts for teenagers.

Shoppers are urged to buy any extra item from anywhere in the South Burnett to leave in the basket before December 14 for children who will get little or nothing this Christmas.

The gifts will be collected for distribution by the South Burnett Child Safety Service Centre.
