How to Help

Goodwill Stores

Our sister organisation operates two goodwill stores which raise funds to enable us to offer programmes and services to community for FREE and for low cost.

You can support us by shopping at Goodwill Terrace End, and Goodwill Higbury.  These stores offer quality secondhand clothing and other goods.
Volunteers are always welcome at the stores and at the workshop where all the donated goods are sorted.

If you have good quality clothing and other items to donate look for the Goodwill bins located around town. If you need assistance with picking goods up, please contact the office on 3500307, and speak to Tracey or Priscilla, or someone from the workshop.

Donations / Bequests

Methodist Social Services had its origin in 1963, arising from the concern of members of the Methodist Church in Palmerston North at the many serious needs that were not being met by the very few welfare organisations available at that time. We partner with a variety of organisations, government departments, businesses and the wider community in the delivery of our services and other activities. Our staff are skilled in the delivery of education programmes, social work support and counselling for
children, their parents, couples and individuals. We are a registered Charitable Trust, under the governance of a Board of Trustees, which are made up of members of the Methodist Parish in Palmerston North and members of the wider community who have an interest in our work.
DONATIONS: Donations can be made at any time to the office, by mail, or by internet banking to our bank account.

Our account is: Methodist Social Services 02 0800 0004587 00
We would like to thank you if you make a donation, however we understand that sometimes people wish to make anonymous donations.   Donations can be made for a specific purpose or in general for the running of the agency and for service delivery.

‘While it is well enough to leave footprints in the sands of time, it is even more important to make sure that they point in a commendable direction.’
