Sending Love Christmas Cards for the Elderly

Lindsay Upton from Manukau East Council of Social Services (MECOSS)

Christmas may be weeks 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 east Auckland 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.

Neighbourly Reporter from Neighbourly.co.nz

Hi Neighbours,

To help more people get home safely on the last day of the work year for many, Auckland Transport is making all travel on buses and trains free from 4pm on Friday, December 21.

AT’s Group Manager Metro Service Delivery Stacey Van Der Putten said you can a have a drink after work, and you don’t even have to think about the car, just get the bus or the train.

“Also, if you’ve never used public transport in Auckland, this is a great opportunity to give it a go.”

What do you think about this offer? Will you use the offer?
