The Little Pantry Winter Appeal Goal

This winter, The Little Pantry wants to reduce the food insecurity that often arises from financial hardship. You can help us by donating to The Little Pantry Winter Appeal.

Over the next three months, we aim to raise $5,000 to go towards purchasing non-perishable food, personal items, and house hold cleaning products for people in need.

The Little Pantry is run primarily on donations. You can support people in need in your local community by donating to The Little Pantry.

Support The Little Pantry and set up a regular collection box for The Little Pantry in your workplace.

  • Download and print a donation box poster to put on your box.
  • When the box is full, contact WCS on (02) 6282 2644 and we will arrange for a WCS volunteer to collect the donations.

You can also support by making a tax-deductible secure online donation, and 100 per cent of your donation will go directly to the purchasing of non-perishable foods and personal items for those in need.

To date we have raised $2,506, which is 50% of our Winter Appeal target. Your contribution, no matter how small, can create a big impact to all Canberrans doing it tough this winter season.
