Every year Foster Hope collects new, unwrapped Christmas presents for children in care throughout New Zealand. Many children enter emergency service facilities during the Christmas period, and we would love your support. Sadly, the festive season is a peak time for child protection agencies that are faced daily with the reality and severity of child abuse, neglect, and crisis in our local communities.
Our aim is to bring a little bit of sunshine and hope to our most vulnerable children. If you would like to donate a present (unwrapped, please) check our drop-off points throughout the country.
While our official cut-off date for these gifts is the 5th of December, it would be wonderful to have the bulk of the gifts in by the 1st of December. This will give us time to distribute them to social workers around the country and account for any additional presents needed ourselves.
