Christmas Box Canterbury 2021

$1,020 donated
Given by 14 generous donors in 7 weeks

Help us to finance the distribution of 2,950 Christmas Boxes full of food to families in need throughout Canterbury.

Christchurch, Canterbury

Christmas Box started with the belief that charity begins at home, delivering Christmas gift-wrapped food boxes to local families in need. Today, we see the impact of Kiwis feeding Kiwis as this project responds to the ever increasing needs across our nation.

Christmas Box originates from The Life Centre Trust (an Auckland-based community organisation under LIFE) who in 2021 along with 200+ Government and Community agencies, will oversee the donations, the packing and distribution of thousands of food boxes to families in need throughout Auckland, Kaikohe, Whangarei, Hamilton, Tauranga, Palmerston North, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin.

One Christmas Box caters for families of 4-6, helping supplement breakfast, lunch and dinner meals over a week. The value of the box is $75, but with generous sponsorship and donations from businesses, the box ends up costing $30.

- You donate $30 - Christmas Box and our sponsors more than double your donation to an approximate value of $75 - Over 2,200 volunteers pack the food into Christmas Boxes - 440+ Community and Government organisations distribute Christmas Boxes to families in need - 161,463 Total Families Fed!

Life Church Christchurch is the point church in Canterbury to raise the money, contact organisations to distribute to needy families throughout Christchurch and organise packing the 2950 boxes ready for distribution.

About us

Life Church has three campuses in Christchurch (Upper Riccarton, Lincoln and New Brighton). We believe in having a positive impact on our local community and city.

Use of funds

For 2,950 boxes the cost equals a total of $88,500. Along with sponsorships and business partnerships nationally, Life Church Christchurch underwrites and aims to raise the remainder through fundraisers, sponsorship and of course givealittle donations!
