A Letter of Thanks from City Mission
Good Morning Cheryl
In terms of the Can Collection donation you guys managed to put together it was absolutely incredible. In the week leading up to Christmas day we handed out over 1400 Christmas food parcels, which was an all-time record for us here at the City Mission.
To put that in perspective that’s over 4x the amount we would hand out in a normal week throughout the year.   As you can imagine, serving that number of our people requires a huge amount of preparation, planning, volunteers and of course food.
Without people like yourselves getting together and supporting us we simply could not serve our people, so rest assured the work you and the team put in directly affected some of our communities’ most vulnerable families, and allowed us to provide them the opportunity to have the kind of Christmas that all kiwis deserve.
So from all of us here at the City Mission, thank you so much for your hard work and support. We couldn’t do what we do without the help of people like yourselves. We are humbled and ever so grateful for your continued support.
