What is Big Hearts?

Big Hearts at Christmas is an initiative we run every year as a church, coming together to donate boxes with food and Christmas treats — everything a family would need to celebrate Christmas well.
These boxes go to families that otherwise would go without during this season that should be a time of joy and family. Families we have relationship with through our work with low decile schools, Redcross, Woman’s Refuge and other partnerships.

$100 covers everything in the box including a $25 fresh food card allowing families to get fresh food for a Christmas meal of their choosing.

You can donate your box via Pushpay by following the link below, or alternatively you can download a shopping list, buy the products yourself and bring them to an ARISE church foyer near you. In addition to this we would love it if you could pick up a Christmas card and fill it out with a message of love this Christmas and this will also go in the box.

We would also like to invite everyone to be a part of our packing and delivery days in December, where we come together, pack and deliver these boxes to families across New Zealand.

Let’s come together and share a real message of hope and love this Christmas!
