Christmas Pressure is coming ....

Sandra Alexander from Upper Hutt: Wider Community Connectivity

Somewhere recently, I noted a great suggestion ......
At this time of year .... Instead of filling our Noticeboards with "FREE STUFF" .....
Wrap, label (eg age / gender) and give to / place under the tree of your favourite charity for distribution to those who would appreciate / cherish
such a gift.
I know I will definitely be taking this approach this year, so would like to know what agencies within our community would like some support.
Please can we gather information to enable satisfactory results for all
using this Community Connection page.
Charities: Let us know what would be useful and give a drop off point.
Neighbours: Let us know what you have available so it can be directed to the appropriate destination.
"Waste not; want not."
Sure hope others feel similarly to self.
