‘COATS OF CARE’ FOR THE HOMELESS
Can you help provide coats for the homeless?
We are most grateful for the generous gift of 100 weatherproof, warm coats gifted to us by the Sydney members of the international Order of Malta last year. Again this year, they have sent us these coats and covered all freight and customs charges. The coats will be distributed by Catholic Social Services.
One of the oldest institutions in the Church, the Order works in 120 countries, committed to serving the poor and sick.
We would like to make a contribution to help them cover the thousands of dollars they have spent to assist the homeless people in our communities.
Can you help with a donation towards these costs?

More Agencies Applying for Grants from the Foundation, May, 2016
The Catholic Caring Foundation has received an unprecedented number of applications from community agencies seeking funding for their work with the homeless, refugees, families suffering from issues of violence, hunger, and addictions as well as other critical social services within the Auckland diocese.
The Catholic Caring Foundation receives applications for funding from charities operating in areas of high need such as the Far North, South Auckland and Glenn Innes. An independent grants committee assesses the applications, and grants are awarded to successful applicants who are assisting families out of poverty. These services do not have to have a religious affiliation.
The Foundation supports smaller agencies that may not be receiving funding from other larger sources. A maximum of $15,000 can be applied for and while this is not considered a large amount of money by some it can make a fundamental and significant impact on the ability of the small agencies to stay afloat.
The grants committee met on Friday 20 May to determine the successful recipients of the 2016 funding round, who will be advised shortly.
