💙 We need your help to fill the Merry Vinnies toy shop! 💙

Piloted in 2018, A Merry Vinnies Christmas came from our drive to give whānau seeking our services more choice over what they receive.

A Merry Vinnies Christmas offers a shopping style experience to families seeking help over the holiday period, giving them the dignity, ownership and choice to choose the presents they receive from us.

🎁 How:
The Vinnies Welfare & Service hub transforms into a festive toy shop over December. Unwrapped, donated gifts for children aged 0 – 16 years, are displayed for whānau to come and choose from.

Gifts are sorted and displayed in values of 1, 2 and 3 tokens. Each child receives 3 tokens worth of gifts – so a parent can decide if they want 1 big present, or maybe 3 smaller gifts to fill up a stocking.

A wrapping station is available so whānau can enjoy wrapping each gift from a variety of paper, ribbons and stickers – further fostering the feeling that each gift is coming from them and not a charity.

In 2018, 81 individuals and families chose gifts for 256 children from the Merry Vinnies toy shop.

🎁 We need your support!
We need supporters like you and your team to collect gifts for the Merry Vinnies toy shop.

Gift criteria:
•Appropriate 0-16 years old
•Unwrapped
•New/ near new condition
•We’re always short on gifts for teenage boys (12 – 16 years)
•Drop-off by 28 November

💙The old saying goes ‘Christmas is the time for giving’. Let’s go a step further and make sure this ‘giving’ puts the dignity and mana of our wider community whānau first.
