Throughout the year, we partner with Serve the City who organise opportunities to practically support the needy in Amsterdam. At Christmas we encourage you to get involved with their Count Me In initiative.
Here are 3 ways to get involved:
1. MAKE A CHRISTMAS BOX (BEFORE 17 DEC)
Every week 500 families are coming to this “unofficial” food bank to get food. We would love to bless every single family with a nice extra “Christmas parcel” when they come to pick up their weekly food. There are families struggling financially, especially because of Corona. Many were working as cleaners and in restaurants and there are no jobs for them right now. They have been struggling for months and we would like to make sure they have food around Christmas and feel loved and cared for by many people!
See the instructions and list of items here.
You can deliver your parcel to a location in either Amsterdam Centrum (16 Dec) or Nieuw-West (16 & 17 Dec). You will receive the exact address & available drop of times in your sign up confirmation email.Full info & registration
2. GIVE TIME
There are many other different opportunities available for you to join in and volunteer for throughout December. Why not suggest to your community group that you get involved in an activity together?Get involved
3. GIVE MONEY
Support the work of Serve the City by making financial contributions to their continued work. You can do it on their website or transfer money directly to their account. Stichting Serve the City, Amsterdam, NL07 ABNA 0432725776Donate
So we would encourage you to choose a way that suits you, and love our city in a tangible way this Christmas. Please mention that you are a member of Liberty Church when you sign up. Thanks!
