Rotorua Salvation Army Christmas Foodbank Appeal
22 November 2022
The Christmas tree is going up in the Council Customer Centre this week to start collections for the Rotorua Salvation Army Christmas Foodbank Appeal.
This annual appeal helps local families in need throughout the Christmas period and into 2023.
Donations of non-perishable food items are welcome, as are toiletries.
This year, Council will take part in the ‘Fill the Bus’ event on Wednesday 7 December, which The Hits Rotorua run annually to support the Salvation Army Christmas Foodbank Appeal. The bus travels all over Rotorua so that local schools, shopping centres and businesses can fill it with the donated goods.
Council offices will be one of the locations that the bus will stop at, so members of the public are encouraged to drop their donations of at the Customer Centre, 1061 Haupapa Street, Monday - Friday from 8am to 5pm.
If donations are made after the Fill the Bus event on 7 December, Council staff will deliver these to the Rotorua Salvation Army at midday on Wednesday 21 December 2022.
