Our current focus is to raise $250,000 for our 2013 Christmas Hamper Campaign. This will allow us to fill and distribute 10,000 emergency food relief hampers to those who need it most at Christmas time. Here's what some of our welfare agency partners had to say:
“Massive impact on our clients and families at Christmas time when people are struggling not only financially, but emotionally. Our clients were all so grateful to receive the Foodbank SA hampers.” Vanessa Burling, Baptist Care (SA) Westcare
“On behalf of St Vincent de Paul Port Pirie we would like to thank Foodbank SA and your suppliers for supplying a hamper with a wide range of products at low cost.” Gary Polkinghorne, St Vincent de Paul Society Port Pirie
"Brilliant! Very useful for our clients. The hampers were able to be used for clients experiencing significant financial hardship.” Elmina Joldic, Australian Red Cross
And from a recipient family of Uniting Care Wesley Bowden:
“Thank you so much for the food parcel and presents. We were not looking forward to Christmas as it seemed we would not have enough money to pay for anything, but the food parcel made it so that the kids could have a lovely Christmas lunch, like all their friends. They were so excited and surprised to see their lovely presents on Christmas day. We all had such a fun time picking them up at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre. Thank you for making our Christmas much happier than what it would have been”.
