Christmas may be months away, but it’s not too early to start thinking about the numerous elderly folk who may find themselves alone this festive season.
MECOSS is putting out a call to the Manukau East community, for contributions of Christmas cards penned with hand written messages.
A collection drop-box will be set up in the foyer of the All Saints’ Community Centre, 30 Cook Street, Howick, every day between 8:00am and 4:00pm from Monday, 5 November until Friday, 7 December.
Then before Christmas, the 'Sending Love' charity will distribute the cards you've crafted, to people in our community who’re elderly and living alone, or who're confined to an age-care facility.
