2018 United Way Christmas Shoebox Campaign

United Way NZ would like to thank the companies who helped us put together 240 boxes of presents, for children who would otherwise be going without this Christmas.

A special thanks to the staff of:

Grant Thornton,

Kohler NZ,

Pitney Bowes,

Chubb Insurance,

Ignite Architecture and

Natures Bounty.

United Way NZ is working with Budgeting & Family Support Services, who operate in Mangere, Otara & Tuakau, to distribute the presents to families experiencing hardship.

United Way proud to support Age Concern North Shore

Club Gordon is a luncheon club, operated a weekly, for those over 60 years of age.

The club operated by Age Concern North Shore provides social opportunities for older frail people in our community.  This reduces isolation, loneliness and depression, due to participants feeling like part of a community. 

Health and wellbeing is monitored and Age Concern connect clients with other services where required. Caregivers also benefit from some rest and respite and volunteers get upskilled.  United Way are proud to support this lovely community service for our elderly.
