Through the generous giving from the teams at Spark, Deloitte, NZ Infrastructure Commission, Hays Recruitment, Xero, Dell and TAS Health, Chorus, along with our individual online donors we were able to support five community charities in the Wellington region with the 2021 Christmas appeal.
The project would not have gone ahead without a drop off, pick up and volunteering centre. We would also like to thank Wellington Helicopters and East by West Ferries for their help, support and use of their venues for the project.
We delivered 245 boxes of presents and essentials to English Language partners (Porirua and Wellington branches), Bellyful, Heart Kids, Wellington Homeless Women's Trust and
Kids Need Dadz. Thank you to everyone involved who volunteered and donated to make this possible.
I would like to let you know that we have delivered 25 Catalytic Foundation gift boxes to children. They were so happy and pleasantly surprised and their parents too. It was lots of happy faces and smiles.
My colleagues Sarka and Fleur who are our coordinators and I had a great fun as ‘Santines’. Thank you very much.
