The Christmas/New Year period is extremely challenging for those dealing with issues of homelessness and family breakdown due to mental health and substance abuse. Your donation will be used to provide support to Soul Cafe guests throughout the Christmas and holiday period.
SOUL CHRISTMAS LUNCHEON - WEDNESDAY, 18 DECEMBER
The Soul Cafe Christmas Luncheon is held on the Wednesday, 18 December.
At this luncheon, over three individual sittings, hundreds of guests will be served Christmas dinner with our very own "Random Souls" belting out some Christmas Carols! Santa delivers toys to the children, ladies' and men's hygiene gift packs are distributed and Christmas Food Hampers are provided to every family.
On the day we hope to hand out 200 Christmas Hampers to needy families. $35 purchases a Christmas Hamper that contains $65 worth of food value!
HOLIDAY HELP & FOOD HAMPERS
As you may be aware, many services are closed for the holiday break between Christmas and into the New Year. Your financial donation will help Soul Cafe open up to provide a service to guests on three dates (see below) during the holiday period. Volunteers will be on hand to distribute breakfast packs, take away meals, custom-made hampers and to serve guests with coffee and tea.
During the period between Christmas and New Year we will have 100 Holiday Food Hampers prepared. These hampers will be handed out to families in need between 11am and 12:30pm on Monday 23 December, Monday 30 December and Thursday 2 January.
You may be able to assist us by donating non-perishable food items towards our holiday food hampers. Click this link to download a Holiday Hamper shopping list of the non-perishable food items we would like to include in our food hampers.
Your financial support will enable us to continue to meet great needs as well ensure we make the Christmas and holiday season as enjoyable as we can for our guests and their families.
Your donation of $2 or more is tax deductible. Every donation is greatly appreciated and highly valued!
