MarionLIFE Community Services - Fundraising Month of June 2023


MarionLIFE was started by Marion Church of Christ in 1985, and continues today as a registered charity. This month you are invited to help bring hope to those in our community who are courageously facing challenges such as unemployment, homelessness, mental health issues and isolation. Your financial donation would allow MarionLIFE to continue to provide programs like Emergency Relief, Community Meals, Social Connection and Education Courses.

We can’t do this work alone, please consider how you could give meaningful support this June to help transform the local community by supporting the LIFE-changing programs and assistance provided through MarionLIFE. Would you consider partnering with MarionLIFE as we seek to raise $50,000 to continue to provide meaningful, flexible and responsive support to people in our community? Donations that are spread out over the year (for example once a month) help ensure that we can cover the expenses of running our centre in the year ahead.

You also donate drop off some non-perishable food items via the blue bin in the foyer to support people in need of Emergency Relief, or you can give your support through the gift of your time by signing up to volunteer with us – contact us to express your interest.

Together we can give meaningful support to help people thrive in life. MarionLIFE Community Services is a registered charity, and donations are tax-deductible. Regular or one-off financial donations can be made online here Alternatively, pick up a donation envelope from the Church foyer or visit MarionLIFE in person during the week.

We invite you to come along to BBQ church on Sunday 25 June at 6pm to learn more about the work of MarionLIFE and how you can be involved! PDF poster attached.
