Gifting this festive season has taken on extra meaning for the Wellington Chocolate Factory, which is donating 10 cents from every bar purchased to Wellington City Mission, helping spread love and joy to the people and families under the Mission’s care.
From today until Christmas Eve, all bars sold will see a portion of the proceeds donated directly to the Mission as part of the Wellington Chocolate Factory Giving Campaign, which is in its second year. This year is more important than ever, with need increasing amongst the community as the rising cost of living impacts the city. The money raised from the sales will go towards bringing some Christmas joy to the families the Mission supports.
Operating in Wellington for over a hundred years, the Mission is open to all those who need it, regardless of their circumstances. Focussed on dignity and compassion, the organisation works to build positive outcomes for its users through a Social Supermarket, 1-to-1 counselling, budgeting advice and social services.
Bars are available from Wellington Chocolate Factory stores, including their brand new pop-up on Lambton Quay opening later this week, online, and at select Wellington stockists.
