Would you consider being our friend?
For the past 15 years, All Saints Church in Howick, Auckland has offered support to those in the community suffering from grief and loss. This has mostly been through the Seasons™ programmes and also, in the last couple of years, through the Horizons programmes as well.
GALSS - Howick has traditionally raised amost all its funds through applying to charitable trusts. In the current climate this has become increasingly difficult.
Therefore, in 2011 the Friends of GALSS scheme was set up by GALSS - Howick. Individuals, families and businesses were asked to become Friends of GALSS and to commit to make a donation of $100 each for a minimum of two years towards the costs of running the Howick - GALSS operations. An anonymous family agreed to match the funding received from others from this scheme in its initial two years.
This has been a very successful endeavour and in 2011 over 40% of the costs of running GALSS - Howick were met through the kind donations of the Friends of GALSS. We currently have over 70 Friends of GALSS - but we need more.
Please sign up to be a Friend of GALSS. For a commitment of $100 a year for a minimum of two years you can help us make a difference. Such donations are, of course, tax deductible as charitable donations.
If you would like to become a Friend of GALSS please contact the Howick - GALSS coordinators Howick - Christina or Lesley on ph 533 0222 or 021 034 4587 or email them at [email protected] or contact the All Saints Parish office at Selwyn Road, Howick, Auckland (hours: 9am - 3pm).
