The 2020 Christmas Shoebox Project distributed 176 boxes of presents to children and their families, who are in hardship. The boxes included new items of clothing, sports gear, and special Christmas gifts.  We would like to thank the following organisations in Kaitaia who helped us reach out to families in need.

  • Te Rarawa Family Services and 
  • Whare Timatatanga Hou Ora Kaitaia Women's Refuge

If you would like to assist in donating items for the 2021 Christmas Shoebox Project please contact us.

The Catalytic Foundation are currently inviting submissions for fund management opportunities, corporate/business sponsorship, payroll giving and donations to support community groups who are making a social difference in Northland communities. We are all in the waka together!
