We end 2017 with great satisfaction.
We've been overwhelmed by the generosity of our community. The Fire Service crew were really generous with their time doing a food run to stock our shelves in readiness for the Christmas parcels.
We sent out over 60 to families in the week leading up to Christmas. Many children received Christmas gifts that had been donated by families and Churches and individuals. Gifts came in as fast as we were distributing them. Organisations, businesses, Play Centres, Schools and multiple individuals brought in food .
To top our year off.... Dale Monique and Nic rallied the Community to put on a family afternoon of pre-Christmas entertainment as a Food drive fundraiser for EmpowermentNZ.
What a fabulous community!!!
We have the best volunteer team, outstanding local support and wonderful recipients of the hospitality of our Community Hub team.
It has been our honour to serve the community in 2017 and we look forward to 'Collaborating to see our Community thrive' in 2018
