Foster Hope are running their annual new pyjama drive leading up to winter. There are over 6,000 children in foster care in New Zealand many who arrive at their new placements with little or no belongings. The drive is asking for new summer or winter pyjamas (aged 0-18 years). Many of these children have never had a brand new pair of their very own and knowing that someone has shopped especially for them is a huge boost to their self-esteem.
Bayleys Kapiti at 19a Raumati Road, Raumati Beach are participating as a drop point until 26th June. If you can afford to purchase a new pair of pyjamas, these will be gratefully be received by one of these children. Anything we can do to help them feel loved and valued is a huge part of what we do.
