You can help support vulnerable New Zealanders

The most vulnerable in our communities have been greatly affected by the economic impact of COVID-19. Please donate and support kiwis during these uncertain times.

With the support of the 2019 Food Drive, the Foodbank was able to immediately provide for the needs of the community when we went into lockdown. Donations will be used to purchase staples we don’t readily receive.

Good News Story’s

Morena Helen hi it’s *Pete here. just letting you know thanks for all your help it’s been really great ! But I’ve got work now and won’t be needing the food parcels anymore! I told pars to tell you when they met with you few weeks ago , but they said today they didn’t mention so thought let you know also maybe ring pars because every one at this place works now so I think the parcels should go to people that need it more ! But thank you 🙏 also soon as I get more settled I’ll come see you guys and see how I can help out , and I can give back for how you helped me out ! Ps if anything does come up and you need people save my number and I’ll be there in heartbeat to help out ! Thankyou Thankyou you guys are so great ! 👍

Pass it on that the Salvation Army Community Ministries team have been supporting people that would not usually require assistance and who find themselves in a situation which is both scary and humbling. Thankyou so much for the food hamper my wife and I appreciate it more than you know.

Kind regards
