Thousands of families in New Zealand can’t afford to celebrate Christmas this year, some might even have to cancel. We at Ray White Takanini & Karaka strongly believe everybody deserves to smile this Christmas. As a charitable initiative, we’vepartnered with Life Community through their ‘Christmas Box’ campaign to help South Auckland families and groups who may need some extra support and care in an effort to bring the joy back this festive season. Each person in our office will be donating a “Christmas Box” filled with non-perishable food, pantry essentials and a few special Christmas goodies to a family in need. A humble cardboard box could bring much needed hope and excitement into these families homes over what could be a very stressful and demanding period.
Christmas Box started as a grassroots local initiative in 2001, delivering Christmas gift-wrapped food boxes to neighbouring families in need. Since then, they have packed and help deliver over 190,000 boxes and impacted over 156,000 families just in New Zealand. Christmas Box exists to bring hope to the table of families across NZ, Australia and The Cook Islands. The Ray White Takanini & Karaka team is calling on South Aucklanders to show their generosity by donating to our Give-a-Little page to raise funds for this worthy cause. Ray White Takanini & Karaka will match the total donated amount by up to and including $2000.00
Life Community aims to ensure that the most vulnerable do not go hungry. Those who wish to donate canned and non-perishable foods are welcome to drop it off at either our Takanini or Karaka branch where will be collected by Life Community. Items such as Pasta, Tomato Pasta Sauce, Baked Beans, Sugar, Flour, Tea, Long Life Milk, Oats, Rice & Weetbix are always high in demand and greatly appreciated.
