This Christmas, we can show the love of Jesus through practical assistance, providing food hampers and gifts that have been packed with love.

Each year we distribute hampers to congregations so that they can be given to people who are finding life difficult and need a helping hand. We want the hampers to help create opportunities for you to connect with people in your community and show love in a practical way. The hampers contain food and gifts and each year they are given as an expression of Jesus’ love, letting people know that we are thinking of them at the time of our great Saviour’s birth.

Who does Jericho Road give them to?

We distribute Packed with Love to a range of different people who are connected to our various ministries.

In past years, this has included:

                  • Refugee families we support through Sydney Refugee Team
                  • Families of children attending our low-cost preschools
                  • Families of inmates supported by our prison chaplains
                  • People impacted by crises or disasters

We also provide congregations with packages or hampers to distribute to those in need within their local communities.

Contribute to Hampers

Donate funds

To be able to provide hampers outside of Sydney, we need funds. If you’d like to assist us with this and enable our regional churches to bless their local areas in this way, please donate funds to the project. To donate, click the button below and choose the option “Christmas hampers” as the purpose of donation.

Donate goods

We are collecting food items and gift items to be packed into the hampers. If you think your church would be able to contribute, we’d love to hear from you. We’re accepting contributions until 30th November. There are several drop-off locations around Sydney, we might also be able to arrange to pick up goods from you. Get in touch to arrange drop-off or pick-up but clicking the button below.

Nominate Recipients

Would you and your church like to give something to those in need in your community?

Maybe it’s a family (or multiple families) that you know have had it tough this year. You could use the giving of a hamper as an opportunity to connect with them and show them that you care. 

If you have people in mind, you can nominate them to receive a hamper. We’d provide it to you and your church to give it to them personally.

Even if you’re not in Sydney, we’d love to enable the giving of hampers and there’s a couple of ways we can get them to you!

We’ll be accepting nominations until 15th November 2021. Your submission will be considered and someone from the team will be in touch shortly!

Nominations are now closed
