BROWN PAPER BAG APPEAL IS HERE!

How it works: You can find the bags in The Press during the week of the 2nd July, or at your local New World stores. Ask one the New World team where the bags are if you can't spot them! Or pick them up from our reception at Hereford Street.

How it works: You can find the bags in The Press during the week of the 2nd July, or at your local New World stores. Ask one the New World team where the bags are if you can't spot them! Or pick them up from our reception at Hereford Street.
All you have to do is fill it with non-perishable items, such as canned goods, dried pasta, rice and cereals, as well as toiletries and female hygiene items.
Once you've filled your bag, all you have to do is drop it off to either your local New World or to our reception on Hereford Street.
Each bag is helping real people in real need, thank you for your support.

Why we need your help: Last month our Foodbank experienced a 34% increase in the number of food parcels we gave out, compared to the previous year. And June has already been another busy month. We are asking you all to help us look after the families and people of Christchurch that need food support over the next few months.

We are facing a very real shortage of canned goods; staples like spaghetti, baked beans and canned fruit. Packets of pasta, rice, and noodles are in short supply, and so are essentials like sanitary items and toiletries.

For every pair of shoes you donate at ASICS Dress-Smart, they'll give you $20 off a new pair.

All shoes donated will go to the Christchurch City Mission to provide for others in our community.

What a great initiative!
