Be someone's angel this Christmas - the Mission's Christmas Appeal
Nov. 22, 2020
This year Medplus will again be helping the Auckland City Mission to make Christmas special for families in need by collecting Christmas food and gifts for the Auckland's Angels appeal. With the help of organisations like ours, the Mission last year distributed over 8000 Christmas food parcels and over 30000 gifts to people in our community, who could not otherwise afford to enjoy the festive season. This Christmas will be particularly hard for many Aucklanders, and our support is more important than ever. If you'd like to be someone's Angel this Christmas, please drop off your donations of nonperishable food and new, unwrapped Christmas gifts at Medplus Lake Road or Medplus Devonport until 21st December.
Suggested food donations include: tinned food (beans, soup, fish, vegetables), pasta, rice, spreads, cereals, muesli bars, flour, tea bags and Christmas treats.
Gifts for all ages (including teenagers and adults) are hugely appreciated, as well as donations of wrapping paper and tape. The Mission suggests a budget of $10-$20 per gift. Remember not to wrap them, as they have to be unwrapped to check suitability for recipients.
Alternatively you might want to make an online donation to the Mission at aucklandcitymission.org.nz. Thank you for your support!
