Salvation Army Community Christmas Tree
This year we are delighted to be working with the Salvation Army again to help them work towards their Christmas Hamper day by encouraging people to bring a gift along to place under the tree.

The Salvation Army, Whangarei, every year give out approximately 250 Christmas hampers to families who are struggling for a number of reasons. This is over and above a normal food parcel. The hamper contains a Chicken and vege's for Christmas dinner, chips and dips, dessert, non-alcoholic drinks, and treats such as chocolate biscuits and nuts.

Along with the hampers The Salvation Army also give out Christmas presents to each of the children of the families concerned. This they are able to do each year through the generosity of our community.

The Salvation Army say their greatest needs are Christmas puddings, jellies, fancy biscuits, lollies/chocolates, potato chips/ nuts, onion soup, reduced cream and tinned fruit.

Presents for teens are also an area they are sadly lacking in. Especially for 13-15 boys and girls.

Please feel free to bring a gift along to the Christmas Festival to place under the tree if you are able to.
