Your kindness makes a difference to lots of local people

Hunter Hands of Hope run a dinner service most nights of the week from our shop-front in Vincent Street Cessnock and supply breakfast & snack packs to those in need for the next day.  We also help people with obtaining services and housing to get back on their feet.

To keep our service running we need grocery items and money to keep the doors open.  We occasionally put the call out for specific types of donations such as clothing and furniture on our social media feeds.

Discover some of the ways that you can support our most vulnerable locals by looking at our current requests below & heading over to our FAQ’s page.  There we include our opening hours, tasks we need help with and ways to donate.

We welcome any support, no matter how small or often.  We look forward to meeting you!

Whether it be food,

personal items or money,

no matter how small,

every little bit counts!
