FAMILIES THROUGHOUT AUCKLAND NEED YOUR HELP THIS WINTER

VINNIES Auckland are now working around the clock to get all the stock and resources ready to support families and individuals who will be struggling to put food on the table during winter.

As it gets colder we are starting to see a surge in the number of people reaching out for a top up of hotmeals, foodboxes, warm clothes, blankets, and advocacy.

Many families continue to struggle from Food Insecurity due to loss of jobs, the decrease of wages and also pre-existing poverty due to the high cost of housing and low incomes.

With your generosity Vinnies was able to distribute approximately 23,400 foodparcels and other essential needs to families from March 2020- Jan 2021

We really need your help to support and hold families through the next couple of months

We need your help to continue this work.

THANK YOU FOR MAKING A DIFFERENCE FOR THESE PARENTS AND THEIR CHILDREN

VINNIES prepare to support Families through Winter  15 June 2021

Posted by: Society of St Vincent de Paul East Auckland Area Council

As New Zealand starts to ramp up the heat to keep their homes warm, many families are faced with the stress of not having enough food to put on the table and not enough heat in their homes due to poverty and the inability to afford the extra cost of power. For many of these families food becomes a discretionary item.

VINNIES like many other charities predict a surge for the demand for food parcels, warm clothing and blankets during the colder months. Since the COVID19 lockdowns, the demand is still 50%-65% more than it was pre-COVID19.

Food Insecurity stills remains an issue, with the housing shortage, high cost of living and low incomes.

Throughout Winter VINNIES will be supporting thousands of families with hotmeals, food boxes, warm clothing, blankets and advocacy support,

WE HOPE YOU CAN JOIN US IN SUPPORTING ONE FAMILY THROUGHOUT WINTER,
