As you may have gathered, Milly’s Kitchen have long been passionate supporters of the Auckland City Mission. The job they do and the burden they carry is hard work and at times dispiriting, we’re sure, as the need is so great. They rely on the public for 80% of their total funding and this allows them to operate all their support services for the homeless and a network of food banks across Auckland. Knowing winter can be an especially challenging and difficult time for charities such as these, it is important that we get behind them in any way we can.
Milly’s are getting involved again - this time we’re supporting the Auckland City Mission One Can, Two Can appeal which is running from the 18th–29th of June and we would greatly appreciate your assistance.
To make supporting this appeal as simple as possible for everyone, we have a collection point in-store and we’d love you to drop by with a can or two (or five or ten!) next time you’re in the ‘hood'. Alternatively, please purchase as many "cans" as you’d like to donate here for only $2 each. We will then support the Mission to purchase any cans they are short of to fill their food bank boxes and fill cupboards around Auckland on behalf of our generous customers.
Of course we also have our signature Milly's gift-wrapping available for which we usually ask for a gold coin donation and proceeds from this will also be going to the One Can, Two Can appeal. So if you are making a purchase that needs wrapping, please feel free to donate a can or two and we’ll make sure these are added to the Mission collection boxes.
Thank you all so much for helping us to help those in need this winter – they, and all the team at Milly’s, really appreciate your care.
