Desperately seeking volunteers…

Desperately seeking volunteers…

The Auckland City Mission invites everyone with a cheerful disposition, who takes pride in our city, to assist with the Mission’s Street Collection on Wednesday 20th July in Auckland’s CBD and Newmarket.

The Street Collection is part of the Auckland City Mission’s Annual Winter Appeal, which supports the most marginalised people in our community.

Representing the Auckland City Mission:

Is a wonderful way to be part of one of our city’s leading charitable organizations and witness some of the enormous generosity alive in our community. Is a great team building exercise and opportunity to interact with other socially minded people. Requires minimal time commitment and is perfect for groups of people with busy schedules. Participation is simple, requires no begging, pleading or asking; just a friendly face!

We supply brightly coloured collectors’ T-shirts, buckets, stickers and a post event personal letter of appreciation

Date: Wednesday 20 July Time: 7.30am- 9.30am and 12pm- 2pm Location: Auckland CBD and Newmarket
