Please help! - Toot4Tucker Foodbank Appeal
It’s almost Toot4Tucker time when Tawa Rotary invites the community to donate some non-perishable food items from their cupboards for the Christmas restock of Tawa’s Foodbank. This is particularly when there's increased demand on foodbank supplies leading up to Christmas/New Year.
This year’s collection dates are Tuesday 4 December and Thursday 6 December between 6pm and 8pm - with backup day 11 Dec. The Tawa Volunteer Fire Brigade will sound their engine’s siren and collectors will blow their horns/whistles to let you know when they are in your street – hence the name ‘Toot4Tucker’! We travel the streets, we do not knock on doors.
This community project involves multiple service organisations in collecting for this worthwhile appeal.
So please have a few items sitting ready for the collectors. Cash donations for the Food Bank will also be happily received.
The generosity of our Tawa community towards this annual foodbank appeal has been growing over the years since established in 2011. Find out more from previous years' collections.
