DONATE A PLATE CAMPAIGN 2019
A little bit of context
The Christmas season is a joyous occasion for many. With the biggest concerns leading up to the day deciding what to wear to accommodate our indulgence in the festive foods, making sure we make time to see all our loved ones, and if we had chosen the right gifts for our family and friends.
The above concerns would be a dream to others.
But there’s a problem
In contrast, Christmas can highlight feelings of isolation, depression and financial hardship. This can be some peoples’ reality every year, or for the first time this year due to a range of factors. These can include loss of employment, loss of loved ones, changes in health, homelessness, mental health factors, changes in the family dynamic and single parenting. These have a huge impact on how the affected families experience Christmas.
And this is where YOU can make a difference!
Here’s what we’re doing about it
For the second year running C3 Langford Church is hosting A Community Christmas dinner under the stars. We will provide the venue and all the food and entertainment to celebrate with the community the festive spirit. Additional to the dinner we will be delivering over 250 gifts to families who are less fortunate this year as well as holding our Christmas Spectacular concert running for it’s 10th year
Our 2018 campaign ‘Donate a Plate’ was a huge success, and we are excited to be able to run this years’ campaign
To fund the cost of this event we have created a ‘Donate a Plate 2019’ crowdfunding campaign. Our goal is to raise $7,000. A donation of $25 will feed two people, $50 will feed a family of four.
To acknowledge each donation, your name (or business logo) will be printed on a plate and displayed in focus on the outside poles of the church for everyone to see. Our aim is to fill the whole front with plates.
“A community family is something that our church is committed to building. Throughout the year we have an array of events and programs, which encourages the local community to build relationships with each other in a safe environment. Our Love Langford free Community dinners, feed approximately 180-220 people every fortnight Tuesday.
Over the past five years C3 Langford Church have provided over 35,000 free, freshly mademeals for people in our community through our ‘Love Langford’ program. This program has provided an opportunity for members of our community to join together. This program has seen many friendships formed. It’s more than food; It’s dinner at our place, where we set up dinner tables encourage a family atmosphere and give opportunity to connect people with others, build relationships and effectively, positively change lives.”
