Reaching is a 100% not for profit volunteer run benevolent charity that provides instant relief to struggling & vulnerable individuals and groups.
We serve the community in various ways, but predominantly we dedicate the most resource to the following food and material relief:
At Reaching we partner with various local community providers who screen clients that are eligible for our help. This is a comprehensive screening process that ensures those who are referred to Reaching are really in need.
The groceries ordered ensures those in the household are catered for and nutritious options are selected.
Materials for the Homeless
This comes in the way of sleeping bags, tents, blankets, pillows, health & hygiene packs. In recent times we have also distributed gas stoves, air mattresses as well as other items of need.
During the year, we also undertake various projects that assist the local community, such as:
- Christmas Toy drives
- Easter Hampers
- Donate furniture to those in need
- Non-perishable food drives
- Team development days with Corporate Partners
- Information sessions with various local community groups
