Brown Paper Bag Collection

The Winter Appeal also includes our iconic Brown Paper Bag Collection.

Look out for our return-addressed donation envelope and special brown paper bag in the Dominion Post on Thursday 27 June. Then you can make your choice – will you support by donating "The Money" or by filling "The Bag" with goods?


If you choose "The Money", you can return the envelope to us with your donation, or donate online at any time on our Donate page here.
