Give someone a reason to smile this Christmas
This year we invite you to bring the spirit of Christmas to people in need. For most of us Christmas is a time for overindulging, and sharing the joy of the season with family and friends. But for some, Christmas is a time of dread, loneliness and anxiety. Please help us provide a number of greatly needed services in the community during the Christmas period including food hampers, nutritious meals, clothing and Christmas treats, as well as short term emergency accommodation. The Elizabeth Mission even offers a free lunch on Christmas Day where those experiencing isolation can come together and enjoy the festivities of the season. Over the coming weeks, we anticipate a very busy time in our Emergency Assistance centres and urgently need to raise $160,000 before Christmas to enable us to be there for those who have no one else to turn to.
