MECOSS is putting out a call to the community, for contributions of Christmas cards (home-made or store-bought), penned with anonymous hand written messages for someone to enjoy this Christmas.
Why this? Unfortunately there are senior folk living in our community who do not receive cards or visitors during the festive season.
Tips: Have fun being creative; Make sure your writing is legible; Fill your message with love; Please keep the envelope unsealed.
Collection box: Has been set up in the foyer of the All Saints’ Community Centre, 30 Cook Street, Howick, and you can drop them off every day between 8:00am and 4:00pm until Friday, 7 December.
Then before Christmas, the Sending Love organisation 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.
More drop-box locations can be found at www.sendinglove.co.nz...
