In association with the Citizens advice Bureau of Glen Inness and with the assistance of New World St Johns, located in Lunn avenue members of Rotary St Johns were able to successfully work with an amazing community and over the day packed 116 boxes of donated food for the Glen Inness and Tamaki food banks. Co-ordinator Miles Cain plus CAB manager Patsy Sim were overwhelmed by the generosity of shoppers who gladly supported those in need to be able to make a difference within the community.
The President of Rotary St Johns Allan Smith praised his team’s initiative and the fact that several of the team gladly donated their time to both collect the items at the store on Saturday and then on the Monday a number helped to sort the items into categories to ensure that distribution to those families was managed more effectively by the CAB & Tamaki teams.
This project has finished off the 2018 year on a high and shows what can be achieved through a group just trying to make a difference.
