House of Welcome Food Drive 2021

Our annual food drive for House of Welcome kicks off on 1 June, 2021.

The food drive will continue to run until the end of June. Please drop your items to the NSCC office between 10am - 5pm, Monday to Friday. 

The food bank is already suffering from the knock on effects of coronavirus, with many staple household foods and items hard to find in the supermarkets. Please help us stock them back up and make sure that families relying on these basic supplies can get them. 

Last year the community collected over 1000 bags of household shopping for refugees supported by House of Welcome. Please help us make sure that families relying on these basic supplies can get them. 

Held throughout the entire month of June, simply bring your bag of shopping to the Centre and we will arrange for it to get to the House of Welcome.
