Take love to an older generation by encouraging them.
Anglicare has over 44 aged care facilities where Take Love Teams can get to know, spend time with and bring new energy and enthusiasm to residents. You might decorate the facility, put on a performance, run a trivia night, do some gardening or even just make new friends and bridge the generational divide. Depending on the location we can take groups of 10-15 students.
Food and Goods Warehouse
Take love to families who need food and clothes.
Every year, tonnes of food and clothing are donated to Anglicare by generous supporters. These donations all end up at our warehouse in Villawood to be sorted before being distributed to those who need them. Go behind the scenes, meet the people who make it all happen and help sort through the donations. We can take teams of 10 students.
Toys ‘n’ Tucker
Take love to children and families at Christmas
Anglicare runs its Toys 'n' Tucker campaign every year. Food and toys are collected from churches, schools and other organisations and packed into hampers to be given to those in need at Christmas. Your team can come in to pack the hampers and pick out toys for the kids to enjoy.
Take love to others in need
Do you have an idea of how you could support your local community? Let’s partner up! We’ve had schools fund and build sensory gardens for children in foster care, or help put on performances for residents in aged care. If you’ve got an idea, we’d love to hear it.

I really enjoyed my time at Anglicare. I have never put myself in environment like this before. It was really interesting to see behind the scenes of Anglicare and the hard work that is put in by volunteers.
Kira, Year 10
Our week at Anglicare was jam-packed, rewarding and fun! It was an amazing experience to have been able to work behind the scenes and in turn, make a difference in so many people's lives.
Nat, Year 10
I really enjoyed this experience and really opened my eyes to how fortunate I am to have access to simple everyday necessities like food. I enjoyed being able to be a part of the process of packing boxes and organising the shop, knowing that it will have a direct impact on people's lives.

I enjoyed being able to help out at Anglicare and being able to give back to less fortunate people in my country. I found it interesting to learn about how places like this work from the inside and found the experience to be very rewarding.

It was so amazing to be able to have a firsthand experience with the ground work of Anglicare. To be able to participate in the work they do to reach those in need, is something that has reminded me that the season of Christmas is much more about giving than receiving.

We have really enjoyed our time at the Anglicare Op Shop, everyone is really nice and there are a range of jobs that we can do. It's great that we have the opportunity to help out.
