A huge THANK YOU to everyone who contributed to making this our best Gift of Groceries project yet!!

On 7 & 8 December 2017, with the help of over 80 passionate and hard-working volunteers, many generous sponsors including Tauranga City Council, and key partnerships with New World Mount Maunganui and Kiwi Larder, we donated 1,000 bags of Christmas groceries and boxes of fresh produce to those in our community who are doing it tough - showing them hope and kindness, and pointing them to the reason for the season.

It was such a privilege to partner with 32 amazing organisations across Tauranga, Te Puke, Whakatane and Opotiki who helped distribute the Gift of Groceries packs to those who need them most:
