Mr Park’s Story
Mr Park was born and bred in Auckland and moved to Hong Kong in the late 60’s, where he worked as an architect for 19 years. His two children grew up in Hong Kong before the family returned to Auckland in 1987, making Milford their home.
After generously donating to the Auckland City Mission for over 15 years, Mr Park gave the ultimate gift. He chose to remember the Mission and thousands of Aucklanders that need our services, by leaving a gift in his will.
“My dad always gave generously and he loved to help other people,” said Mr Park’s daughter, Karena.
After taking care of his loved ones, Mr Park named the Auckland City Mission, alongside two other charities, in his will. At the age of 73, this kind architect passed away. Over his lifetime and including his bequest, he donated almost $11,000 to our work.
Mr Park’s gift will help fund services that support the growing number of Auckland families who come to the Mission in desperate need.
“He would support a cause where he felt a shared need and understanding. My dad was a kind man who just wanted to give back to society,” Karena said.
Auckland City Missioner, Chris Farrelly, said the Mission is extremely grateful for Mr Park’s support.
“Mr Park’s generous bequest to the Auckland City Mission is something we are very grateful for and something which his family can be very proud of,” said Chris. “This legacy will provide a long lasting link between the Park family and the Mission. Legacy is about life and living. Through legacy, ‘me’ becomes ‘we’ and encompasses the past and future and what we perpetuate and hope for. Thank you.”
