Christmas Hampers 2014

October last year I decided I wanted to give back to families who were struggling around the Christmas period.  So I asked my childcare families if they would like to donate goods for a hamper, they were all very forthcoming and started to bring me grocery items.  This then lead me to post this on facebook

"Gab's Childcare" would like to give back to families in the community who are struggling with food bills. I am hoping to collect non-perishable items over the next few months and make up boxes for a number of families who will receive these around the Christmas period. However, for me to do this, I need you help! Would you like to donate maybe one, or two or even a bag of items, i.e. cans, pasta, rice ect, Every bit helps but for this to work I need as many families to help me. I appreciate it so much, and I know the families will be overwhelmed with the kindness.
Please help spread the word.

Drop off can be anytime, or happy to pick up, please pm me
Thank you!!!!

I was blown away by the response, food, toiletries and general house hold items started to roll init was amazing how many people wanted to help others. Just shows there are many good people in this world.

To my surprise I had a call from North shore times, they had heard of my Christmas collection and wanted to help spread the word also.  So I was interviewed and more items were delivered because of there help.
