Summary

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.

Challenge

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.

Solution

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."

Long-Term Impact

Your donation today can: - provide a hamper of groceries to a family who would otherwise go hungry - help cover utility bills and essentials like toiletries to uphold the dignity of families in crisis - help give families the comfort and security of a home this Christmas by supporting emergency rent payments - support 33,350 people in our inclusion programs - assist 55,000 of people via our volunteers - potential of $180,000 of household relief funds provided through our volunteers
