A 2023 Catalytic Community Needs Survey identified that a minimum of 4,021 households across Aotearoa were unable to provide Christmas presents for their children.

With an average of 2.7 children per household, this equates to over 10,000 youngsters who may not have experienced the joy of opening a gift on Christmas Day.

Thanks to the generosity of kind hearted shoppers and one for one gift matching by us, 234 local children have now received a present from Santa.

From books, art/craft supplies and soft toys to games, clothing and personal care products, all of these wonderful items will be treasured.

Thank you to everyone who has made this happen.
