Last year Dunedin business people turned up at the local Salvation Army clutching potato plants. This unusual sight was actually a great example of community response to local needs.
“We held a potato growing competition to provide spuds for Christmas dinners for local elderly,” explains Nolan Hill, Salvation Army Centre Leader. “An elderly man already caters for these seniors, so the wider community jumped on board with further support, including donated hams and drinks from other locals.”
Dunedin City Salvation Army has a dynamic youth development team which is engaging with families, schools and the wider community in the North East Valley area.
Four years ago, The Salvation Army and local police started an after school ‘activity club’ for 8-12 year olds referred from local primary and intermediate schools.
This club has become the ‘Activelife’ programme, held at North East Valley Normal School. They work with local police, support agencies and schools to “hand-pick” ten children who are facing personal challenges at home or school. At ‘Activelife’, university student leaders have discussions with the children over food, games and activity-based learning. Each child has a self-assessment chart which explores values such as generosity, trust, team work and encouragement.
Dunedin City Salvation Army received Tindall Foundation funding for their community activities through Salvation Army, acting as one of our faith-based Funding Managers.
