    The Projects team have been running a lawn mower programme for the last 2 years where families are able to come and borrow a mower and mow their own lawns - which is all part of our philosophy of a hand up. It's been great to be able to give families the independence to be able to look after their own properties and take pride in their homes.

    Over the years we have developed a relationship with families and now we would like to lift the burden of having to borrow one or hire one or trying to buy one as it's simply something they can't afford to do

    So we are asking for your help please - If you have a lawnmower you are not using or upgrading or moving house etc. Could we please request that you donate it to us to be able to give to families in need for Christmas.

    Help us to get people the tools they need to take pride in their properties and lend their lawnmowers around their neighbours too. One Lawnmower will help much more than one property.

    We would like to be able to give every lawnmower that goes out a set of Ear Muffs and Petrol Can, if you would be willing to donate $25 towards this we would really appreciate that, please let us know. We will also be needing some parts too.

    We are thrilled to have Action Equipment on Board as Partners in this new community initiative they are going to be giving the lawnmowers a once over and putting together a parts list. All three of their branches are agents of this wonderful initiative so you can drop your lawnmowers off to any of the following :

    TAURANGA - 15 Glasgow St

    KATIKATI - 108 Main Rd

    TE PUKE - 271 Jellicoe St

    Once our volunteers have prepared the lawn mowers we will send a referral form out to our 70 Recipient Charities and Organisations who will be able to refer their clients to be considered. Then the lawnmowers will be delivered in time for Christmas.

    Please help us spread the word around your family, friends and workplaces. Keep an eye on our FB Page too and share the initiative.

    The Good Neighbour Firewood Dept has now distributed over 200 Cubic Meters of dry split firewood to families in need. The wood comes from the Port as damaged export logs and is then processed by our machine with the help of lots of volunteers. Refferals are made by local agencies and then families come to the depot and load up their load and then help deliver it, stack it and then load up another families load. We finish the morning with a community BBQ with Food from our Food Rescue Dept with all the families and volunteers . Please help support this wonderful initiative and help keep families warm for next season 2021
