Doing good at Christmas
The Life Centre Trust is behind the Christmas Box initiative, providing families in need with Christmas hampers made up of donated food and other goods. Last Christmas, volunteers helped pack hampers in Auckland, Kaikohe, Whangārei, Hamilton, Tauranga, Rotorua, Palmerston North, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin.
We were pleased to play our part, providing warehousing space at M20 Business Park in Wiri for the annual event. Operating as a distribution hub for the other centres, over 260 tonnes of food was processed with around half of this packed into 12,000 hampers for the wider Auckland region. In total, 25,000 boxes were distributed to families in need, from Kaitaia to Bluff.
