Support Christchurch Families

Donate to the Salvations Army’s Canterbury Earthquake Appeal 

Like us, you’re probably wondering what you can do to support families in Christchurch. Many families will be needing food, comfort, a place to stay or even advice on what to do next.

The Salvation Army has relaunched its Canterbury Earthquake Appeal. The Salvation Army have a team on the ground assessing the need following this second devastating earthquake. Donations will help them meet Cantabrians’ initial needs, including food parcels, water and shelter. They will also support families over the longer term, as they again come to deal with the flow-on effects of another earthquake.

The Salvation Army is accepting monetary donations and offers of volunteers. They are not requiring clothing at this time. 

To volunteer: phone 04 384 5649.

To donate:

  • Freephone: 0800 53 00 00
  • By Post: ‘The Salvation Army, PO Box 27 001 Marion Square, Wellington 6141, New Zealand’
  • Donate online
    (Please specify that your donation is for the ‘Canterbury Earthquake Appeal’)

And of course, your phone calls and texts of encouragement – and your prayers – are being gratefully received. 

Let’s stand with families in Christchurch.
