The Society tries to promote self-sufficiency, enabling people to help themselves. Any assistance offered by the Society is given in a non-judgemental spirit of compassion, based on the need of the individual or family.

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!
