I represent a dynamic and growing charity that, for over seven years, has sought to relieve local poverty - in all its forms.
Each year as the busy Christmas season approaches, we see the demand on our services increase by over 50% as local families and individuals are faced with real need. It’s for this reason we created the Nexus Care Christmas Appeal; a time of year we dedicate to raising awareness of those doing it tough and provide opportunity for our community to generously help.
So, I encourage you to ‘join your hand with ours’ and make a difference in the lives of local Brisbane families this Christmas.
WHAT WE KNOW
In 2016, we recorded a 59% increase in demand at Nexus Care during the Christmas season
Then in 2017, a further 51% increase at Nexus Care during Christmas and into the new year
Now in 2018, we have already had more local families and individuals contacting us for support than in previous months. We expect this to continue until February 2019.
YOUR GIVING MAKES A DIFFERENCE
The figures below are an indication on how your financial gifts make a real difference to local Brisbane families:
$15 provides a family with a Christmas Hamper full of the extra goodies to share for Christmas Day.
$25 provides a large parcel of healthy and filling food items, the equivalent of up to 60 meals for three people.
$70 helps a mum or dad with back-to-school essentials such as stationery, textbooks, uniforms or school shoes.
