Life’s good at Christmas




Life’s good at Christmas.

Join LG in providing an unforgettable Christmas feast
for Auckland families in need.

There’s nothing better than enjoying a slap-up dinner with your loved ones at Christmas. Except, perhaps, helping Auckland’s most disadvantaged families have an equally warm, wonderful Christmas meal.

This year, LG is giving away up to $200 worth of grocery vouchers with each purchase of selected LG fridges, TVs and more. Use them for your own festivities, or donate your vouchers to the Auckland City Mission and make Christmas a day to remember for families in need.

This December the Auckland City Mission expects to provide around 2,000 food parcels for Aucklander’s in need. Diane Robertson, City Missioner, says “The extra pressures of the Christmas period sees a huge increase in the number of families struggling to meet their basic needs. Without donations of cash, food and the vouchers from the Auckland community we simply would not be able to provide the emergency assistance needed by so many families”.

A $200 grocery voucher will provide food parcels for three families,which provide emergency food assistance for a family of four, for four days. So you’ll be making a real difference on what can be one of the loneliest – or happiest – days of the year.
