Big Group Hug is a volunteer-driven, not-for-profit organisation based in the Northern suburbs of Melbourne. They work with local communities to respond to the immediate material needs of vulnerable and disadvantaged children and their families. The organisation essentially eases the ability for people to donate to less-fortunate families and give some practical support in times of need. The volunteers check, sort and distribute all donated items through Maternal and Child Health Workers and other community welfare agencies.
Lexicon Digital donated supplies to Big Group Hug just in time for Christmas 2019.
