Winter Appeal

Winter can be devastating

The cold weather and increased costs that come during the winter months have an effect on us all. But for many families and individuals across the Wellington region, it can be devastating.

With costs like rent and food continually rising, many people are already struggling to make ends meet. Then when winter hits, these challenges intensify, and they are forced to stretch their limited incomes even further. It’s heartbreaking when people realise they simply don’t have enough to heat their homes, pay for rent, and provide necessities like food, healthcare, warm clothing and bedding for themselves and their children.

People in need across the Wellington region will be faced with these challenges this winter – but thanks to our supporters, The Wellington City Mission will be there to help. You can support our Winter Appeal by getting involved in any of these key activities

With your help, we’ll be able to continue providing immediate relief like food parcels, hot meals in our Drop-in Centre, and resources like warm clothing and extra bedding, to keep people warm, healthy and nourished. By donating today you’ll also make sure we can offer services like financial mentoring, advocacy, and social work support, to make a difference long-term.

So let’s band together to be there for those who winter hits hardest. As we each play our part, we’ll make a life-changing difference!
