Our members and volunteers make regular visits and give assistance to needy individuals and families, the elderly and sick, those in our local prisons or the homeless in our local communities. We also provide a welfare line and food bank as well as clothing and furniture for refugees and migrants others in need.

We have hundreds of members and volunteers both young and old doing good works throughout our community every day. A recent audit of our welfare lines showed that we assisted over 550 individuals in one week alone in the Christchurch area. Of course this does not include the many regular unrecorded visits that our members make each week.


Latest update

Update for 08/07/2014  8 July 2014

Our Latest phone line audit shows that we are helping an average of 400 individuals per week with food and other necessities of life. Over 800 bags of firewood have already been delivered this winter season in the Christchurch City Area. Many thanks to our young volunteers from the Young Vinnies groups who helped put many of these bags together. We are currently working on getting ""Street Swags"" from Australia for those who are sleeping rough in our city. These are waterproof, high quality bedding units that can be carried around like a back pack. These will be distributed to the most needy through our colleagues who are working with the homeless in the city. Many thanks for your ongoing support.
