City Mission to raise $1.3m for families – MSN

The Auckland City Mission will need to raise $1.3 million this Christmas so they can provide food parcels, medical care, advice, and other essentials that many families go without.

In the weeks leading up to Christmas, thousands of Aucklanders in need will line up outside the mission’s drop-in¬†centre, particularly women raising children on their own.

“We end this year deeply disturbed and saddened that so many of our fellow New Zealanders do not have the basic right of access to a sufficient quantity of nutritious food and an affordable home,” says city missioner Chris Farrelly.
