Helpers needed for mis­sion ap­peal

Auckland City Harbour News - - News -

Peo­ple keen to get into the Christ­mas spirit early are in­vited to help with the Auck­land City Mis­sion’s an­nual street ap­peal.

The ap­peal, which will see vol­un­teers in the cen­tral city, New­mar­ket and Taka­puna, is part of the mis­sion’s an­nual Christ­mas ap­peal which raises money to sup­port the most marginalised peo­ple in the com­mu­nity, in­clud­ing the home­less, chil­dren liv­ing in poverty, peo­ple with ad­dic­tions and iso­lated el­derly peo­ple.

The city mis­sion says vol­un­teer­ing re­quires min­i­mal time com­mit­ment and is per­fect for groups of peo­ple with busy sched­ules.

It doesn’t in­clude any beg­ging, plead­ing or ask­ing – just a friendly face.

Col­lec­tors are pro­vided with bibs, buck­ets and stick­ers.

The street ap­peal is on Fri­day, De­cem­ber 12.

To reg­is­ter as a vol­un­teer call Adrian Bis­quera on 303-9209.
