For some, winter is lovely crisp mornings, an exciting ski season and family evenings around the fire. For many others, it brings a grim struggle to find enough warmth, food and shelter. Winter pushes vulnerable people and families who are only just getting through the week into despair as the cold bites and the bills climb. This is why the City Mission’s Winter Appeal is so important. It’s when your support for our work matters most.
On behalf of all the families you are helping, thank you so much for supporting our call for food and donations over winter.
BAYLEYS Food Drive
"Cans for a Cause"
Bayleys Canterbury have partnered with the Christchurch City Mission for the Bayleys Food Drive, Cans for a Cause this June.
In 2018, the Christchurch City Mission provided more than 38,000 food parcels to those in need. This year, that number is set to increase. Please join us by dropping off cans and non-perishable items to any Bayleys Canterbury Office or the Christchurch Art Gallery.
Together, we can truly help people in our community get the support they need this winter.
14th June – 30th June
This year, you can help your community beat winter with the Christchurch City Mission Foodbank Appeal!
Find your bag in your local New World or mailer from the 14th June, and fill it with non-perishable goods. Your support means our Foodbank and range of services can continue their valuable work.
