Inside this issue:

  • The end of the year can be a dark and desolate time when you have little or no disposable income to provide Christmas for your children. For one Christchurch Salvation Army client, who was adjusting to life on a benefit following the recent death of her partner, the run-up to Christmas was a time of dread and despair. Find out how The Salvation Army helped her bring Christmas home.
  • A Salvation Army project called DALTA is bringing together unemployed people with Christchurch residents in need of help is opening up training and employment possibilities for dozens of people.
  • For their greatest ‘Big Sallie Surprise’ yet, Crown Relocations sponsored the New Zealand Breakers vs Adelaide 36ers basketball game in Auckland on 15 November, turning the event into a huge fundraiser for Salvation Army food banks in time for the high Christmas demand.
  • Christmas is a time for celebration and renewing relationships, but it also brings home the harsh truth to many living in poverty that they are excluded. Find out how The Salvation Army helps low-income client families celebrate Christmas without missing bill payments or going into debt.
