Warm up the Streets

We are partnering with Stoney Creek to Warm Up the Streets again this winter. Together, we will fundraise and distribute 3000 packs of quality fleece clothing (top, pants and hat) to kids in need across Tauranga, Whakatane, Opotiki, Kawerau and Te Puke via low decide schools and partner organisations such as Open Home Foundation, Ngati Ranginui Iwi and Tauranga Police.

We want this project to also warm the heart.  Therefore, packs will be distributed at fun Winter Parties across the Western Bay of Plenty in June/July. Recipients and their whanau will celebrate alongside community organisation representatives and volunteers, with a sausage sizzle, live music, bouncy castles, face painting and more!

“We believe in you” will be printed on every box and clothing label, because our hope is that not only will kids be warmer this winter, but also that they can walk a little taller, filled with a sense of pride and self-value.

We would love for you to jump on board to help make Warm Up The Streets a reality!
