Winter Appeal 2020
Winter has arrived in a world that none of us could have imagined.
It seems like yesterday when we were responding to the devastating bushfires. Now local communities are battling to cope with COVID-19. Many have lost their jobs and are struggling to feed their families or even keep a roof over their heads.
Lutheran Community Care has been there to support the vulnerable during these unprecedented times. Our essential services have adapted to assist families and individuals, many who have never had to ask for help before.
This winter, the demand for Lutheran Community Care’s services has never been greater and we are relying on the kindness of people like you.
If you are in a position to help, please donate and support those in crisis. Your donation will help us provide much-needed services, including emergency food, emergency accommodation, and financial and personal counselling.
Lutheran Community Care’s vision to build strong, caring communities has never been more poignant or more challenging and we thank you for your support.

Please note we have not sent the above letter to churches due to COVID-19 closures. If your church would still like to support LCC this winter, we encourage you to play the following video during a Sunday service in winter.
Thank you for your financial support.
To respond to the needs we see in our community, we rely on the generosity, partnership and financial support of our donors. We thank God for them, many of whom give sacrificially in order to see the important work continue.
Lutheran Community Care receives State and Federal government funding for some of our services. However, this funding must be used for that specific program. Your ongoing support helps to fill the gaps and fund many of our services which do not receive funding. Your donation helps ensure the ongoing success of Lutheran Community Care building 'strong caring communities' in South Australia and the Northern Territory.
Every donation received is used to fund Lutheran Community Care services in SA and NT. All donations over $2 are tax deductible. If you opt in for regular giving, you will receive one tax deductible receipt at the end of the financial year.
