As part of the Brown Paper Bag Appeal this year, The Wellington City Mission invited churches to participate in their brand new Brown Paper Bag Challenge.
To get involved, churches simply chose to collect either food or funds over the month of July, and then set a fundraising target for their congregation.
It was great to see many churches from around Greater Wellington take up the Challenge with enthusiasm – one church even filled over 100 bags of food!
The Mission would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who got involved in the Challenge. The food and funds collected has helped make sure their vital Foodbank and Drop-in Centre services can continue providing food parcels and healthy meals for people in need.
Check out some photos from a few of the amazing churches that took part above.
