The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) is calling members, colleagues and families to join in its annual Christmas party by packing hampers for those in need this holiday season.

In collaboration with other associations, AIP aims to pack 1000 family hampers and 300 women's hampers, all of which will be donated to Foodbank.

Over the last seven years, more than 6500 hampers have been packed to the value of $700,000 for people in need, with all items either donated, or the funds raised by the Association and the wider industry.

The AIP Christmas Party will be held in Brisbane, Queensland on December 7, 2018.
