As a result of COVID-19, many Australian families are experiencing job loss or hardship in these uncertain times. Children are particularly impacted by the distress of their parents. St Vincent de Paul Society NSW is working with families to reduce the risk of homelessness. An emergency food hamper may not seem like something that can change a life - but it is. That is why a donation is so important. On Giving Tuesday help provide essential support to vulnerable families by making a donation.
Millions of Australian families will be spending this Christmas in poverty. Many of them are facing hardship for the first time and have suddenly found themselves frightened about how they will keep a roof over their head and put food on the table let alone celebrate on Christmas Day.
St Vincent de Paul Society NSW is taking pressure off families who are at breaking point by providing food hampers, emotional support, and help with essentials. "COVID hit and I lost my job within days. 100% of my income just gone, like that overnight. It was gut-wrenching. A friend suggested I get in touch with the St Vincent de Paul Society NSW and it was the first time I've ever got help from anywhere."
