The Christmas Shop allows around 120 disadvantaged families on the North Shore to access food and gifts for their Christmas meal and day.Auckland
For the past 6 years we have put together an annual Christmas Shop to serve families who need a helping hand to make Christmas happen. 2020 has been a challenging year for many of us and this year’s Christmas Shop is more needed than ever.
We are working with local agencies to identify the families we can help the most. We then put together a range of household essentials and Christmas treats — everything needed to ensure Christmas can be a special day. On the 17th of December we host the shop and invite the families to come through, collect their Christmas hampers, and choose gifts.
It costs around $110 per family and this year we are aiming to serve about 120 families. We have partnerships in place with a few local businesses and trusts, however there are still significant costs for us to subsidise these items for our families. As a rule of thumb, a gift of $100 will support one family to meet their Christmas needs.
If you’d like to help us make Christmas happen for a family in our community this year, please consider making a donation.
The Good Works Trust is a charitable organisation on the North Shore that works closely with partner organisations to strengthen communities and create hope.
Use of funds
Your donation will help cover the costs to provide families with a hamper of Christmas essentials. Any extra funds we raise will be cycled back into our foodbank to help us provide ongoing food packages through next year.
