Christmas should be a time of joy and happiness for children like Zac.
But for struggling families like Mandy’s, Christmas can be one of the hardest and loneliest times of the year.
A few months ago, Mandy was left with a large debt due to damage inflicted on her property through family violence. Without a safe place to stay, and with no way to repay her debt, Mandy and her children soon became homeless.
Thanks to generous friends like you, Hobart City Mission was there for Mandy, ready to help her family with immediate and ongoing assistance.
But this Christmas, Mandy, Zac and so many others like them need some extra help so that this time of year is filled with joy.
Having grown up with very little to call his own, the smallest gift can bring the biggest smile to a child like Zac…
“When we arrived at the women’s shelter Zac got a bag of toys and things and he was so excited – it was like Christmas then to him!”, Mandy says.
By giving today, you can make Christmas a truly special and joyful time for Zac – and more kids like him – who need our support this Christmas.
Donations to Hobart City Mission’s Christmas Appeal help to provide financial relief, and a sense of Christmas to over 600 children like Zac this Christmas.
We urgently need your support to provide assistance to some of the most vulnerable in the Southern Tasmanian community.
