Appeal Volunteering

By sharing some of your time with us, you are making a difference towards transforming the lives of people throughout Greater Wellington.

The Mission has two major appeals each year - the Brown Paper Bag Appeal in June/July, and the Christmas Star Appeal in November/December - and we are always looking to expand our team of volunteers.

If you wish to become an appeal volunteer (this is not the same as a general Foodbank and Drop-in Centre volunteer), please contact:

Please note: 2016 Christmas Star Appeal volunteering

We have had a wonderful response to our Christmas volunteering this year and our volunteer roster for this season is now completely full.

If you're enquiring about volunteering on Christmas Day, The Mission does not have a Christmas Day meal service. However there are some other amazing agencies in Greater Wellington which we recommend contacting about volunteering on Christmas Day:

  • The Lions’ ‘Room at the Inn’. Christmas Lunch at the Aro Valley Community Centre. Phone 04 499 3240 to register your interest.

  • Presbyterian Support Cashmere Home is looking for musicians and companions for Christmas day.

  • We also suggest contacting the rest homes in your area as there are often residents who don’t have family or friends to visit and are particularly lonely at Christmas time.

If you would like to sign up as a volunteer in our Foodbank or Drop-in Centre, please contact:
