Christmas Star Appeal

How about being someone’s star this Christmas?

Last Christmas it was heart-warming to see thousands of people across Greater Wellington come together to be stars to families and individuals in need. Together we made a life-changing difference across our region.

Because of your generous support we were able to feed around 3,000 people through our Christmas food parcels, provide kids with over 9,300 gifts to enjoy on Christmas Day, and our Drop-in Centre was able to feed over 60 people each day. Not only that, we were also able to support 31 other agencies that we work with during the year – making a real difference right across our region. We are truly thankful for people like you who helped make this happen.

This year we want to make an even bigger difference in our communities, so we’re calling on you to once again “be someone’s star” by getting involved in our Christmas Star Appeal.

Being someone’s star can be as simple as donating funds or food – but the impact you make is tremendous. More than just meeting someone’s physical needs, being a star is about bringing hope, joy, courage and confidence to those who are struggling. By showing them someone cares, you make a difference that lasts long after the Christmas decorations have come down.

So whose star will you be? Get involved in one of our Christmas Star Appeal activities today!
