We haven't been able to do much this year in terms of service so this is a great way for the girls to give backGuide leader Lorraine Graham
For the past 10 years the Albury Girl Guides have been putting gifts under the Kmart Wishing Tree.
And despite COVID upsetting most of their 2020 service activities, the Christmas tradition lived on this year with each girl guide given $10 to pick a present for someone less fortunate.
For 10-year-old Ruby Hilton, being a girl guide is about helping others.
"It is good to give a present to someone who might be doing it tough at Christmas," she said.
"Just a small present can make someone smile and if I can help someone smile that is really good."
Guide leader Lorraine Graham said, like all other community groups, 2020 has been a tough year with not many activities going ahead.
