Instead of mailing traditional Christmas cards last year, we offered to donate $1.00 for every time one of our e-card’s was opened. This year we supported the Dunedin Night Shelter Trust.
The Shelter provides dinner, breakfast and a warm, dry bed for those who have nowhere else to turn. In addition their clients are able to wash clothes, and are provided with advice and assistance in finding accommodation and ensuring they are receiving all appropriate benefits.
The Night Shelter receives no guaranteed funding and each year applies for various grants from community organisations and the Dunedin City Council.
