“TO HELP CHURCHES HELP PEOPLE”
Who We Are
As a Christian-based organization our Board and volunteers are from many different Hawke’s Bay churches and denominations.
We help people referred to us through many agencies who need household furniture and items to make their house their home.Sometimes people need one item, others need a lot. We listen to what people need for their circumstances and deliver them donated items from our clearing house.
How Can You Help?
We are grateful to receive beds, couches, coffee tables, dining tables and chairs, linen, crockery and cutlery from our community that we can gift.
Your quality beds, furniture, crockery, cutlery, pots and pans, cooking utensils, blankets, duvets, duvet covers, pillows, towels, face cloths and tea towels.
We are happy to pick up items from you – please phone us.
Even if you have only one or two items, these will be gratefully received.
Please note that we cannot accept fridges, freezers, washing machines or dryers as we cannot get these certified by an electrician. For these items please phone the Salvation Army who will be happy to collect from you.
We are also happy to accept monetary donations towards our rent, petrol and power costs. Please contact our Operations
Manager Ian Jones at firstname.lastname@example.org for our internet banking information.
We always welcome anyone who wishes to help with our work. Our volunteers don’t have to belong to a church but must respect we are a Christian organization.
You can help:
- in our clearinghouse sorting donated items
- driving or helping on the truck doing pick-ups and deliveries
- in the office accepting phone calls and administration
