Christmas spirit does not happen for many of most vulnerable and impoverished Kiwi kids & their whanau. Families in our communities often don’t get to have food around Christmas, let alone being able to afford Christmas gifts.
There are so many added expenses, & often parents places of employment close over the Christmas period, reducing their limited income. The impact that Covid has had on families over the past few years is huge, with many families now having even less income coming in.
Our generous community donates over 1600 gifts every year in the spirit of manaakitanga and whanaungatanga … but we need help with funding the Kai boxes (food parcels) please.
We want to give out as many Kai boxes as possible this Christmas, but to do that we do need financial help. We estimate Kai Boxes will be up to $180 each this year. The boxes are filled with specifc basics that are chosen to be practical in terms of
– creating family meals
– storage and use (consideration for families without storage, freezers, electricity etc)
– health and wellbeing
We include fresh fruit and vegetables, meat, grocery staples, cleaning and hygiene products plus a Christmas cake and small treat.
Families all across the Mid and Far North of New Zealand will be so thankful for your support.
If you’d like to sponsor a Angel Xmas Kai Box or gifts visit the Angel Shop or Givealittle.
