Christmas Appeal 2020
As we near the end of what has been a challenging year for all of us, the hope and joy that Christmas brings has never seemed so important.
In South Australia we recently saw the uncertainty that COVID-19 can create in a matter of days. It is still difficult to know if we will celebrate Christmas with our families as we normally would this year.
Sadly a Christmas without celebrations and happiness is nothing new to some of the families that Lutheran Community Care supports. Families such as Joanne’s. You can read about Joanne's story and how we helped her family by opening our Christmas Appeal letter.
This Christmas, you have the opportunity to help us change lives and assist families like Joanne’s.
Every donation to Lutheran Community Care will help us provide emergency assistance and practical support to vulnerable families. We will ensure that we walk with those who are overwhelmed by providing Christmas hampers and emergency relief, emergency accommodation, domestic violence support, financial and personal counselling, and so much more.
As we celebrate the birth of Jesus, we are reminded of the hope that was given to the world all those years ago. We invite you to pass that hope on through Lutheran Community Care this Christmas. Warmest wishes and blessings for the holiday season ahead.
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.
