This Christ­mas, you can give a gift of hope to those with noth­ing

Whangarei Report - - HISTORY -

Over the Christ­mas sea­son, The Sal­va­tion Army will give care to more than 17,000 fam­i­lies, pro­vid­ing a range of im­me­di­ate and long-term sup­port—from food parcels, ac­com­mo­da­tion and coun­selling, to bud­get­ing, ad­vo­cacy and more. Ev­ery­thing that a fam­ily needs to make it through a tough time of year and give them hope for the fu­ture. You can give a Christ­mas gift of hope to those with noth­ing, like a Christ­mas Ham­per, Emer­gency Ac­com­mo­da­tion or School Es­sen­tials, and help turn their lives around for the bet­ter. Please sup­port our Christ­mas Ap­peal by choos­ing a Gift of Hope from the on­line cat­a­logue at sal­lies­gift­sofhope.org Or do­nate on­line at sal­va­tion­amy.org.nz/christ­mas­ap­peal CHRIST­MAS AP­PEAL
