Auckland City Mission official partner at The Food Show

Auckland City Mission official partner at The Food Show Auckland

Aucklanders Helping Aucklanders

As one of Auckland’s most influential social service providers, Auckland City Mission supports those in desperate need.

Last financial year, the Mission distributed $1.48 million worth of food via their Foodlink Community Food Program and Crisis Care, housed 128 homeless people and conducted 10,339 consultations at their medical centre.

This year, Auckland City Mission is fundraising with Entertainment Publications during e Auckland Food Show, in an e ort to raise a much needed $2,500 to help pro- vide health and social services for those in need.

As more than 80% of Auckland City Mission’s income comes from donations, they rely on the generosity of their supporters. For the last 5 years, they have also been fundraising together with Entertainment Publications.

Entertainment Memberships are distributed exclusively through fundraising organisations, professional associations, schools and kindergartens, corporate social clubs and sporting organisations. These organisations sell the Memberships as a fundraiser, and retain 20% of every Membership sold, which goes towards their cause. Last year over $5,000,000 was raised through the sales of Entertainment Memberships across New Zealand and Australia.

You can help support the important services provided by Auckland City Mission by purchasing the new 2017/2018 Entertainment Memberships from their stall at the Auckland Food Show.

Entertainment Memberships are available in the traditional hard copy book, or the very handy Digital version which can be downloaded directly to your phone so you can redeem on the go! Both Memberships are filled with hundreds of valuable up to 50% o and 2-for-1 offers for many of the best restaurants, cafés, arts, attractions, hotels, travel, shopping and much more.
