A Merry Vinnies Christmas


keeping the dignity in charity

A Merry Vinnies Christmas offers a shopping style experience to families seeking help over the holiday period, giving them the dignity, ownership and choice to choose the presents they receive from us.

The Vinnies Welfare & Service hub transforms into a festive toy shop over December. Unwrapped, donated gifts for children aged 0 – 16 years, are displayed for whānau to come and choose from.

The old saying goes ‘Christmas is the time for giving’. Let’s go a step further and make sure this ‘giving’ puts the dignity and mana of our community whānau first.

Throughout the month of November and December we will be collecting gifts to full up our toy shop in time for Christmas.
