Friends, as we all realise through experience, the cost of living has increased and the strain on many is great. As a result, the community support pantry at St Andrew’s is always in need of restocking.
Please consider donating when you are able. Ideas of items you can donate are below.
Seriously though, if you are looking for ways to be a part of St Andrew’s essential service ministry now and into the future, we have some thoughts.
Donations of non-perishables are always welcome and needed. As you select items, think:
Will I be able to open this if I don’t have a can opener?
Can I prepare this food if all I have is a kettle, camp stove or BBQ?
Will this food support my health and well-being?
Other ways to help
Or you may want to consider these possibilities:
If you value our hard-working staff and our hospitable spaces, you may wish to increase or begin a regular offering to St Andrew’s. Offerings support the infrastructure that make ministry possible. They are a way of saying “Thank you” to God and “Yes!” to Christ’s work in the world.
We would like to give away more fresh, healthy vegies and fruits than SecondBite is able to provide. We would value Caruso’s gift vouchers (a great local business who support us in many ways) or Coles vouchers so we can top up our fresh food as needed. Any amount is great!
An important service we provide is chemist vouchers. This year we’ve added flu jabs to our offerings and one community member who is at no-fixed-address had his first flue jab ever.
