The local community has overwhelmed Waiuku Family Support Network (WFSN) with their response to the request for Christmas gifts.
Schools, kindergartens and daycare centres have assisted with the collection of items and Centre Manager, Kym Maynard, is thrilled with the results.
“We would particularly like to thank, Glenbrook Kindergarten, First Steps Waiuku, Pukeoware School for collecting gifts on our behalf and Sandspit School and Waiuku Primary school for collecting Christmas food items for us. It has made a real difference to the number of gifts that we have received this year and it is wonderful to have so many children involved in giving this Christmas and helping the community that they live in,” said Kym.
“We wouldn’t be able to offer these gifts if it weren’t for the generosity of our community. It’s been great to work alongside the schools and Early Childhood Centres, and we look forward to more involvement with them in 2018 and beyond.”

More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
