Kids Can supplies

During the holidays we received a new lot of supplies including: Food snacks, shoes/jackets for new children, kutu lotion.

If Whanau wish to use the kutu lotion products they will need to come and collect them from the office please. It would be unsafe to send them home with children.

We also have a supply of bread (frozen and sometimes fresh) so do not hesitate to come in and get some bread if you need any, we would rather it be eaten and used than go to waste or to a pig bucket.
