A COMMUNITY group set up by a busy mother of five featured in a national TV program on Christmas Day.
The Vineyard Co-op consists of families and individuals who formed a collective group to buy fruit, vegetables and groceries at wholesale prices for sale to the public to raise funds for water provision projects around the world.
It was started in April 2010 by Rachelle Attieh, who wanted to make a positive impact in the world around her.
"Two years later, the co-op has raised over $10,000, dug 16 wells and provided about 3000 people with clean drinking water for life in Cambodia," she said.
Recently Ms Attieh and other members were filmed sorting about $500 worth of fruit and vegetables into 25 boxes to raise more than $100 for a charity that provides clean drinking water for communities in Cambodia through Metamorphic International.
The television crew earlier filmed residents on what they were doing in Christmas at Rouse Hill Town Centre.
The Vineyard Co-op featured with The Salvation Army, the SAN Hospital, CAN Mental Health and gourmet chef turned good Samaritan, Zigi Ozeri on the Christmas Day television program.
A Channel 9 spokesman said My Christmas showed Christmas through the eyes of individuals who benefited from charitable work, and their volunteers.
He said the program launched a national social media and online campaign to inspire and enrich lives called CelebrateLifeTV.com.au.
