Give Thought

What images come to mind when you think about poverty? For the majority of us, the experience of poverty is unimaginable. Yet, for some people in your community, these may be a reality. Contact your local church to see what you can do to help address poverty.

Give Support

Donating funds or goods to a charity such as The Salvation Army will often improve the lives of those experiencing exclusion, embarrassment and despair. However, there is more to poverty than the absence of food, clothing, and shelter.

January can be an exciting month as we consider fresh starts and new goals. Giving back can be a great way to start the new year.
