For those who have lost a loved one, are feeling alone, or just plain doing it tough this Christmas, the team at Collier Trenerry are looking out for you.
Their team will be graciously hosting a free community Christmas party on December 7, with great food and live entertainment on offer.
The funeral directors understand those feelings of isolation that people can suffer, especially after losing a loved one.
So, their family is welcoming yours with open arms to bring some holiday cheer.
"I think that in our business we're very conscious that it can be hard at the Christmas table when somebody is missing," owner Greg Collier explained.
"We would just like to care and support those families, giving them a bit of Christmas joy."
This will be the second time that Collier Trenerry have hosted a community Christmas party.
Last year they hosted 'Highways and Byways' for those going through tough times.
The event's name came from Luke:14, referring to the idea of giving and expecting nothing in return.
As always the spirit of giving is strong in the Griffith community, and local businesses have dedicated their time and money to help run the event.
"I'd like to thank the local businesses that have supported us as sponsors, donating food and different items to help us actually make this happen," office administrator Renae Villa said.
"Without their help, donations and volunteers, community events of this scale are hard to pull together."

The road near Collier Trenerry lawn will be closed, making way for the entertainment of Tongan Choir, One in Christ Band, jumping castle, face painting, pony rides and a surprise solo act.
Collier Trenerry would like to thank all of the volunteers that have helped this year, their spirits have aligned with the business motto "families helping families."
There were such good reports on the success of last year's event that Griffith City Council contacted Collier Trenerry, asking them to host the day again in 2019.
"Council were quite happy to block off Daines Street again, we're quite well supported by them," Mr Collier said.
The event will begin on December 7 near 202 Yambil Street at 3pm.
