We all know teenagers are hard to buy for. So we have partnered up with Rialto Cinemas Dunedin for the Movies for Teens campaign again this Christmas.
Social workers have said ‘in families facing financial hardship, teenagers often feel left out of the Christmas festivities, with attention focussed on younger siblings’.
Help us buy movie tickets to give to teenagers who may have little else to look forward to this Christmas.
Your $10 donation will help a young person join in when invited out by friends, or even initiate a movie outing in the holidays. This is the fourth annual Movies for Teens and we have seen the positive effects the campaign has on vulnerable teens. Social workers have said ‘we have seen social empowerment and inclusion as teenagers are getting entry into all those conversations that happen after the holidays about the latest blockbuster’.
100% of funds raised will be used to purchase movie tickets that will be distributed by Family Works to Dunedin teenagers who's parents are living under financial strain.
You're also welcome to stop by our foodbank at 407 Moray place, next to First Church and drop off a donation. We're open 9-5 Monday to Friday. Phone: 477 7116.
