HDA staff Jo and Jane spread a little Christmas cheer this Christmas! Thanks to our friends at christmasbox.co.nz some of our families received Christmas boxes stuffed full of goodies for the holiday period! And thank you to Leanne Knox, the beauty who arranged everything.
About the organisation:
From their website, “Christmas Box was born out of a desire to see families that are struggling at Christmas time not miss out on the opportunity to enjoy and share this special time of year with family and friends. It started in 2001 under the name “Christmas Hamper project” in a small room with 20 volunteers. They collected donated grocery items and packed them into banana boxes, individually wrapped the boxes in Christmas paper and delivered them to families in the local community.” Click on the picture below to find out more!!
