Helping Hand

Helping Hand is a significant outreach program of Croydon Uniting Church and serves people in the local community who are in need – by providing food parcels and food vouchers.

Helping Hand operates every morning during the week from a local Unitingcare property, with those seeking assistance requiring referrals from other relevant agencies.

New partnership

On 30 May 2017 a new partnership was launched between Helping Hand and Rotary Club of Croydon. The Helping hand Project will be controlled by an Unincorporated Joint Venture Board (UJV). The support of Rotary will, in particular, provide an ability to seek donations or grants which require tax deductibility.

Volunteers are always required, and donations are very welcomed.

At Sunday morning worship you can place non-perishable food items in the basket and trolley in the foyer, and you can assist by passing on petrol vouchers from the supermarkets.

Other local churches also assist in collecting goods for this vital program.

Other donations and assistance are welcomed.

Speak to Dianne Bull the Co-ordinator for any further information.
