Thank you to everyone who Became Someone's Angel this Christmas
Thanks to the generosity of our wonderful supporters, the Auckland City Mission's Christmas Appeal raised over $1 million! We are truly grateful to everyone who contributed to the appeal and helped our dedicated staff to:
- Provide 2974 emergency food parcels, an increase of 18% on last year
- Share 6149 Christmas presents with children who would otherwise have gone without
- Provide a further 2945 people with Christmas presents through community groups and our Christmas Day lunch
- Serve 2000 people with lunch on Christmas Day at the Viaduct Events Centre
We are also incredibly grateful to all the volunteers who assisted us throughout the Christmas period. 1867 people gave up a total of 7550 hours of their time to help us pack food parcels, wrap presents, sort donations and provide Christmas lunch for 2000 people. Thank you to all of our wonderful volunteers. We simply could not operate without you!
The need for your support doesn't stop at Christmas
The Mission's services operate 7 days a week, 365 days a year offering practical assistance, advocacy and support to individuals and families who have nowhere else to turn.
Every individual, business and community group that supports our work are an integral part of the Auckland City Mission community. It is no exaggeration to say that we simply could not help those people that turn to us in desperate need without the generosity of our supporters.
For more information on how you can support the Auckland City Mission throughout the year ahead please email the fundraising team.
Thank you for your wonderful support!
