Donate Goods


Our Christchurch House operates like any home except on a bigger scale. We try to keep our pantries stocked with the basics so families have one less thing to worry about when staying with us. 

We are in need of a few items for the kitchen pantry as well as items for the younger one’s who stay at the Christchurch House, please see the list below:

  • Potato chips
  • Snack packs of biscuits
  • Raisins
  • Small children’s bars (e.g. Rice Bubble bars)
  • Other children’s snacks
  • Nappies: sizes 1, 2 and 3

If you would like to purchase some of these items for the House, please drop them off at the Christchurch House between 9 am – 5 pm any day of the week. We are also always in need of petrol, grocery, hardware or department store vouchers. Thank you!

Please note: For health and safety reasons second-hand toys and other household products cannot be accepted.

If you have any questions or would like to deliver your donated goods, please contact us.
