We are in a time of urgent need!
2020 started with such promise for New Hope Care. Our annual fundraiser was in place.
Both the King’s Table and Roma Street Outreach were hitting home runs.
New staff had joined us, funds were flowing and then COVID-19 hit, and it’s hit hard.
Our fundraiser was postponed, Roma Street Outreach had to be cancelled due to social distancing. Some of our volunteer staff had to step back due to their age and our belts had to be tightened as funds began to dry up.
So, in this changed world we looked at how we could still serve the homeless and disadvantaged. The answer, King’s Table would need to go mobile. So, every Friday we prepare approximately 100 hot takeaway meals and food hampers and a New Hope Care convoy hits the road delivering to around 10 hostels in the inner city region. We have also been running the CAP money course on Zoom, the help people with budgeting in this difficult time.
During this time we have had the opportunity to upgrade the King’s Table kitchen. A donated dishwasher and stainless steel benches help with the hygiene and flow of the kitchen. We also have a grant application in place which if successful will see a much needed air conditioner installed. We are also using this time to explore other streams of income for the future.
Until these are in place we want to assure you that so appreciate your ongoing support. It is the prayers, support and goodwill of those such as yourselves that gives us the resources, energy and enthusiasm to continue this work.
Just one gentle reminder as the end of financial year approaches that all donations to New Hope Care are tax deductible. This work can only continue with the generous support of our donors.
