All monies will be sent to a central fund managed by The Warehouse. All donations are tax deductible.
How to send a voucher to someone:
The champion for the Love our Neighbour at Christ Church is Yvonne Kane. Yvonne can be contacted by email on firstname.lastname@example.org
Beneficiaries are identified by parish members and include but are not exclusive to church members. This is a cross parish campaign, so funds raised will be used to assist all vulnerable parish members as well as those ministering to the vulnerable through various church ministries
In order for someone to receive a voucher the following biographical data of the beneficiary must be emailed to Yvonne Kane on email@example.com:
Cell phone number
ID number or passport number if not SA citizen
Date of Birth
This information will be forwarded by Yvonne to The Warehouse for processing and distribution.
The beneficiary will receive two SMS messages, one containing the voucher number and another with instructions for its use
Each beneficiary will receive a R500 voucher to be used at any of the partner stores
Please promote this campaign amongst your family, friends, colleagues, and overseas friends and family,
