Im an Angel

If you become an angel this year you will give hope, help and protection to those who do not share in the wonderful things of Christmas that the rest of us enjoy. Your help will allow children to have a happy Christmas and for them to be able to look forward to a safe and hopeful New Year.

Careforce givers are our regular givers.Careforce funds provide the basics such as food, clothing, shelter and comfort, those things most of us take for granted.

We love to be able to offer Christmas goodies in the food parcels. If you can help with food donations it would be greatly appreciated.

The facility is owned by Christchurch City Mission. City Missioner Michael Gorman said the fire was "disappointing and discouraging."
