Support at Christmas

Thank you for wanting to help those in need over Christmas.

In a year like never before, the Mission is preparing for a Christmas like never before. The demand for emergency food parcels has doubled since pre COVID and it has put a huge strain on our food resources.  That’s where you come in!

There are many ways you can assist:

Donate
We rely on food donations from Aucklanders to provide food parcels for Christmas, but often we need to buy extra food.
Your donation will go a long way to providing food for those in need.  Please donate by clicking the button to the left of the page.

Food and Gift Collections
The Auckland Angels food drive is underway.  If you would like to find out more click here.

Fundraising
If you are planning to fundraise for us get in touch by emailing [email protected]

Volunteer
Volunteers are our life blood and we couldn’t do the work we do without them.  Currently we have enough volunteers to assist over the Christmas period and on Christmas Day.

If you would like to register beyond that time, please go to our website early next year  to register.

Iris’s Story
Grandmother Iris loves Christmas.  It’s her favourite time of the year despite often being a time of hardship for Iris and her whānau.

Iris, who lives alone, says she enjoys the traditions and festivities of the season but it has always been difficult as she can never afford much.  She stretches her income to buy small and useful gifts, such as deodorants and soaps, but wishes she could do more for her family.  For the full story of Iris, click here.
