A Big Thank You and Small Reminder

Kim from Saint Johns

Hi Neighbours,
Thank you so much to everyone who has kindly donated so far this year to this wonderful charity - Give a Kid a Blanket. We have just over 2 weeks of the campaign to go and just wanted to send out a reminder in case anyone else is able to donate items. Donations are understandably down this year due to COVID-19 and the need for support in our community is greater so we would certainly appreciate any further donations.
School Uniform Centre is pleased to be helping out the Give a Kid a Blanket registered charity again this year as a drop off point for the Eastern Suburbs area.

You can send in any new or pre-loved blankets, bedding etc up until July 19th.

Please note all Pre-loved items MUST be freshly laundered and be dropped off in a bag or box - we cannot accept loose items.

We will also very happily receive couriered items straight from stores.

Please address to:

Kim Posner
School Uniform Centre
588 Remuera Road
Auckland 1050

We will be taking a register of the names and phone numbers of each Person donating, but if you could label the outside of your donation that would be wonderful.

We look forward to helping the wider Auckland community this year and spreading some love and warmth with all your kind donations!

Here's a bit more info:

Give A Kid A Blanket is a community action of kindness. We gather donations of warmth from across the wider Auckland area and gift these to kids and families in need through health and social agencies including public health nurses, Police, Community and Social workers. We want recipients to feel both warmed and valued by the community.

What to donate: New and excellent condition pre-loved blankets, sleeping bags, duvets, baby sleep sacks, winter bedding, duvet covers, pyjamas, beanies, socks, jumpers, winter coats, rain coats, cots, Moses baskets. We are only able to accept New Pillows and New Hot-water bottles

(NO other types of clothing thanks)

Donation Protocols (Covid-19)

All donations must be bagged or boxed, no loose donations please. All Pre-loved donations must be washed by the donor before donating.
