Now more than ever, Presbyterian Support Otago is here to help people through difficult times. We are one of the largest social service providers in the region and many people turn to us when times are hard. Anyone can call us or walk in through our doors, and they will find the comfort and support they need.
With your help we can support more people to meet their immediate needs for food and warm clothing, and work with them through our Skillsbank to build life-changing relationship and financial skills.
There are many ways you can show your support for the work we do. We welcome donations of pre-loved items to sell in our op shops, donations of food for our foodbank, and financial donations. You might also like to consider leaving a gift to PSO in your will.
This winter, we hope you can support those in our community most in need.
Kind regards, Jude (Supporter Engagement Manager)
PS: I am always happy to chat with you if you would like to discuss other ways you can support our work, please call me on 03 470 0834.
