The goal of CityCare campaigns is to help restore hope and dignity to vulnerable individuals and families in our communities by providing food relief through our church and community partners. This is achieved by facilitating the provision of in-kind contributions in response to the need in our church and wider communities during various times of year, and in response to crisis situations.
These campaigns also extend beyond the physical items that are provided and are about the sense of community and connections they create between CityCare and our partners, and helps us strengthen existing partner relationships as well as lay the foundations for new ones.
Love Thy Neighbour
Love Thy Neighbour seeks to help restore dignity and hope to the hurting and vulnerable in our communities.
For 2023, Love Thy Neighbour seeks to address both Domestic and Family Violence as well as homelessness in a practical way.
Domestic and Family Violence continues to be a largely silent and increasing problem and is a leading cause of homelessness in Australia. Coupled with the increased costs of living and other social issues, every night over 116,000 Australians are experiencing homelessness.
Kilo of Christmas
Christmas can often pose challenges for many Australians, especially those experiencing food insecurity or financial limitations preventing them from buying gifts for their children.
Kilo of Christmas aims to bring hope and a sense of celebration by providing parents with quality, unwrapped toy packs that they can personally gift to their children on Christmas Day. This approach empowers parents and allows them to experience the joy of giving.
Additionally, we offer food hampers to ensure that those who may otherwise go without can still celebrate a Christmas meal.
