Orange Day 2013: June 17th - June 28th
Since 1998, Orange Day has provided a focus for collections of food and goods in schools and churches. Oranges, a symbol of health and vitality, were one of the main collection items originally, with the focus over time moving towards the non-perishable food items needed to stock Emergency Food Parcels.
Originally a single-day event, Orange Day has grown to cover a two week period allowing schools and churches to fit presentations and collections into their own calendars.
Orange Day for Schools
Orange Day is a great way for students to learn more about social issues that affect the Auckland community and help provide support to marginalised Aucklanders.
This year, we're focusing on food collections based around the contents lists of the Mission's Food Parcels. We are looking for non-perishable items to stock up our foodbanks for the cold winter months ahead. A full list of food parcel items can be found in our registration pack.
To help motivate the pupils and provide a context for the collections we are more than happy to have a Mission representative present information on the Mission to staff and students and are able to collect all donations at your convenience.

Orange Day for Churches
As a part of the Anglican Care Network, Auckland City Mission has always received strong support from churches and parishes in the region. While church collections take place throughout the year, Orange Day provides a focus for such collections in the lead up to a time of peak demand. Mission staff welcome the opportunity to attend services, meet with parishioners and present the work of the Mission.
