Project Blessing this year is an opportunity to give financially towards Christmas Hampers in support of NOVA Women’s Shelters and The Newcastle Basket Brigade.
Our Target this year is 100 hampers.
We do not have facilities to gather food and toys but we can partner with organisations that are already doing an outstanding job.
Nova supports women – with or without children in Lake Macquarie and the Western suburbs of Newcastle, who are homeless, at risk of homelessness, or escaping domestic or family violence. They provide short term accommodation for up to 45 women and children across a number of homes in greater Newcastle. This is a continuations of our partnership with NOVA this year as we have used the funds raised from our Family Festival to support them and one of our CityServe projects was a Backyard Blitz in one of their refuges.
The Newcastle Basket Brigade is a local community group – who fund raises and collect donations of non-perishable food and toys throughout the year, they gather volunteers at HSPA in the Binishell to pack and distribute on Sun 10th Dec. Their target for 2017 is 500 hampers. There is also opportunities for people to volunteer as packers or deliverers. Contact the church office for more information.
During this Christmas Season it is good to consider how blessed we are and to take time to bless another family that may be doing it tough. We all know the profound truth articulated by Jesus that “It is better to give than to receive”. This Christmas your family can be a tremendous blessing as they enjoy both giving a receiving. Please prayerfully consider what you can contribute during Project Blessing this year. Your giving will help remind people that someone cares and that Christmas time is an expression of love.
