For most of us Christmas is a time of giving, sharing and celebrating with family and friends, but when you have nowhere to call home and struggle to feed your family, just the thought of it can be quite overwhelming.
There’s no doubt about it, South Australians are having a tough time. Severe overcrowding is on the rise and we’ve seen more people sleeping rough – more than 100 every night in inner city Adelaide. Last year, Baptist Care’s WestCare Emergency Relief Program assisted 367 individuals and 387 families – we had to turn more than 200 people away hungry.
Want to share your passion for helping South Australia’s most vulnerable – the homeless in Adelaide? We’d really like to hear from you.
Leaving a gift to Baptist Care in your will is a wonderful way of supporting those you have a passion to help. It will also provide hope to South Australians who need it most.
The purpose of the Baptist Care Foundation is to ensure the continuity of strategically important services delivered by Baptist Care in South Australia.
Going the extra mile to support vulnerable and homeless South Australians by donating through your pay (pre-tax) is a win-win for everyone.
