Hibiscus Matters’ annual Christmas collection has begun.
Over the next month, our office provides a collection point for Christmas treats to support families in need.
We are collecting donations of non-perishable treats – the kind of things you would like to find in your Christmas stocking.
Another way to give, is to purchase vouchers from local businesses such as supermarkets and petrol stations, which will also be passed onto people to help them through the season.
Christmas is approaching fast. Anyone is welcome to drop off non-perishable food or vouchers to us at 21 Florence Avenue (corner of Alice Ave), Orewa during working hours right up until Monday, December 7.
Please note we are not able to accept any wrapped, or unwrapped, gifts.
Everything donated will be given to Whangaparāoa Police for their Christmas Community collection, Hibiscus Coast Community House’s foodbank in Orewa and Love Soup Hibiscus Coast, Whangaparāoa.
Together, we can help make Christmas Day something to look forward to for all Coasties.
