Through Hope we can all Make a Difference.



Amidst it all there is hope and that is what we like to focus on here at Vinnies. As we head into the Christmas Season we are mindful of those who are already struggling to make ends meet. Over the past 5 weeks close to 2000 Kiwi households have reached out for support. The requests vary from those juggling numerus jobs through to those who are unable to work due to sickness and other social reasons.

The requests coming through vary from those needing baby products through to needing food or advocacy to decrease bill payments on a Winter electricity bill. The stories shared a real and poignant and many a time desperate. We understand these issues are not going to go away quickly, it has become part in parcel of the times we live in. The socio-economic realities don't lend them self well to those already struggling with housing, cost of living an low income. We understand that many are trying to help and are dedicating alot of time and resource to create solutions for low cost housing, affordable options for food, employment pathways programs amongst many others.

In one sense, we are not without hope, as people of faith and hope we also know that we can make a difference. Thank you for choosing to believe that you can make a difference in the lives of these families.

I would like to acknowledge how very grateful I am to all of you, our wonderful supporters, for your donations, past, present and future.

As we near Christmas, we ask that you continue to rally around these families with us by donating to our Feed A Family Appeal. Your contribution will make a world of difference, it always does!!

Thank you for your generosity and care. We really appreciate it. May God Bless You and your whanau as we head into the Christmas Season.
