Christmas gifts

As Christmas approaches we are keen to let you know about our theme for this year’s gift appeal – relationship/whanaungatanga. We wanted to honour the model of service Frederick Ozanam gave us based on relationships so to bring this about, we thought of offering the opportunity to celebrate Christmas by building relationships through shared experience. If you are looking at  supporting our Christmas appeal we would love you to donate an activity!  This way families get to spend time together doing something fun!
Some great ideas are:
If you are keen to support us in other ways your generosity is always appreciated. Feel free to drop the vouchers or gifts off to our George St shop, or make a donation to St Vincent de Paul (03-0883-0186960-00) with the reference ‘gift’ and we will make sure it is included in a Christmas Parcel.
Thank you for your continuing support,  our outreach is only possible because of the generosity of our donors!

Christmas Paper Bag Appeal

Each Christmas we deliver over 100 Christmas food parcels to people in our community who need a hand up. These consist of general food parcel items to help get through the season and also Christmassy items for Christmas day. We ask our community to help us create these by supporting our Paper Bag Appeal. Bags can be collected from our Dunedin shops and parishes and returned.
