A Little Ray of Giving

Every child deserves to smile this Christmas

Help us shine a ray of light this festive season with Whangarei’s own ‘Christmas in a Shoe Box’ appeal and help put a smile on the face of Northland children who might otherwise go without at this time of year.

Simply grab a shoe box from us (or use your own), fill it with gifts for a child then drop it under the giving tree in our Whangarei office and we’ll ensure it gets to a local child in our community. (Individual gifts can also be dropped in and we’ll help fill a box for a child on your behalf).

It’s a really simple way to put a smile on the face of a child who might otherwise go without this Christmas.

Whangarei’s Christmas in a Shoe Box appeal is being run in conjunction with the following charities:

  • 155 Community House
  • Feed a Family Northland
  • Tryphina House (Womens Refuge)
  • Te Puna O te Aroha (Maori Womens Refuge)
  • Miriam Centre
  • Barnardos
  • Ngati Hine
  • NgaPuhi Iwi Services
  • Oranga Tamariki
