Lent Appeal 2020
The scenes from the recent bushfires across South Australia were incredibly difficult to watch, with thousands of people across the state left devastated following the disaster.
Seeing the loss of loved ones, homes, property, animals and workplaces was terribly heartbreaking and we know many in our Lutheran community felt the direct impact.
In the coming weeks, Lutheran Community Care will be offering personal and financial counselling sessions to those affected in the Adelaide Hills region.
One person we were able to help recently through our counselling services was Nick. His story demonstrates just how quickly a person’s life can change in a single day.
There is a long road ahead for many people in South Australia as they begin to rebuild their homes, properties and lives, so we are calling on the community to support Lutheran Community Care this Lent season and help our neighbours in crisis.
Read about Nick's story and how we helped him by opening our Lent Appeal below.
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.
