Hibiscus Matters’ annual Christmas collection is underway, and donations are slowly coming in. We are now in the final week – all donations must be in by Monday, December 7! This gives the charitable organisations time to make up their Christmas food parcels.
We are collecting 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. Please note we are not able to take any wrapped, or unwrapped, gifts.
Donations can be dropped off at our office at 21 Florence Avenue (corner of Alice Ave), Orewa, Monday to Friday during working hours right up until December 7.
Everything will be given to Whangaparaoa Police for their Christmas Community collection, Hibiscus Coast Community House’s foodbank in Orewa and Love Soup Hibiscus Coast, Whangaparaoa.
Together, we can help make Christmas Day something to look forward to for all Coasties.
