Anglicare News - Shine the light

Demonstrating that people care

Anglicare’s Christmas Appeal is underway – and parishes like yours are helping to demonstrate that people care.

‘Christmas is a particularly tough time for people who feel alone and distressed,’ said Anglicare CEO Chris Jones. ‘Anglicare reaches out to Tasmanians experiencing homelessness, mental illness, gambling addiction, abuse and other trauma’.

He said human connection was of vital importance. ‘Many people facing challenges feel alone, but being seen and valued by others can make a huge difference,’ he said.

‘Your gift to the Christmas Appeal will enable us to deliver food hampers, Christmas presents for children, and financial assistance for families struggling with the cost of rent, bills and groceries’ Chris said.

‘Christmas is the perfect time to let people know they matter. Thank you for supporting the Anglicare Christmas Appeal’.
