Christmas Appeal 2017

Seasons Greetings

Together, we can do more.

Coming into Christmas 2017, there are families in our community who, for the first time in years, are able to truly celebrate the joy of the season.

They are:

  • spending their first Christmas in their new home, after living in a garage, car or crowded, shared accommodation
  • debt free and who now have the skills to remain out of debt
  • able to celebrate with family after rebuilding relationships
  • in stable long-term employment after years of being out of work
  • able to read and write for the first time
  • ending the year with a qualification they can be proud of
  • well-fed and warm after receiving food and bedding

These are families who have been impacted by the support and wrap around services of VisionWest throughout 2017.

Together, we can do more.

As the year comes to an end, we would like to give you the opportunity to join with us so that we can do more.

Your gift to the community this Christmas will enable us in the coming year to support more families, alleviating the effects of poverty, and bringing hope and transformation to people’s lives.

A gift to VisionWest supports the delivery of our services such as counselling, social work, training and education, feeding the hungry and housing the homeless.

And as our thank you to you, we will be giving all those who donate $50 or more, a limited edition Christmas decoration (see photo above) by local artisan Pip Gray. This is the first in a series that you will be able to collect each year.
