Maxine Mitchell and her team can be found in the Armidale Plaza where they wrap Christmas, birthday and anniversary presents for anyone who wishes to donate, and on Tuesday, February 12 she distributed her hard earned donations.
Maxine's team donated $500 to Armidale Legacy, $1330.80 went to Kelly's Plains - Dangersleigh CWA and $1500 Armidale Regional Hospital Maternity Ward, and said her team was able to donate to three different charities each year just from wrapping presents.
"It's been very much appreciated by so many people over the nine years we've been doing it in the plaza," she said.
"I thrive on it. I love it because I get to meet people and get to tell my story and listen to stories.
"People like it because it's convenient and they do like donating. I just like the feeling I get from being able to help people."
Armidale Legacy president Stephen Goldsmith said he was very happy to receive the donation.
"Legacy is always in need of funds for welfare to look after the widows of deceased veterans," he said.
"These days also the younger veterans, who may still be alive, but have lost their health or mental health, and we look after those families including the children.
"We're never short of veterans.They'll always be there, unfortunately."
President of Kelly's Plains - Dangersleigh CWA Lorraine Sewell welcomed the donation.
"CWA is very involved with the drought and the bushfires at the moment," she said.
"We've been very busy doing drought packages and buying vouchers from local businesses and handing them out. Just keeping people going.
"Even though we have received rain, there are still some areas that haven't received any. I was talking to a woman yesterday who lives just outside Uralla and she hasn't had 50 mm for the year."
Acting midwife unit manager Melanie Williams said the unit had a lot of equipment on its wish list.
"We'll be using the donation for some things in our ward which are very much needed," she said.
"We're hoping to upgrade our syringe drivers.
"This donation will go toward helping little babies and women who are having babies."
