When you donate to St Anne's Pantry Foodbank through our Give a Little page you are assisting children and families in Porirua to rise a little above their very real challenges and needs. The value of a typical food parcel delivery is around $160. While much of this has been provided by donated food, each parcel contains purchased goods. During the second half of 2021 we are seeking community support to raise $20,000 though Give a Little.
The attached report above is self explanatory, highlighting:
Since publication we have just received news that Nikau Foundation have granted $10,000 for the purchase of groceries during the next six months. This grant comes from their Porirua District Fund. A BIG THANK YOU to Nikau Foundation.
Porirua Rotary have done it again. Their two recent Aotea collections of groceries have netted more than $1,000 worth of groceries for pre-Christmas distribution by St Anne's Pantry. Between these Aotea collections and their participation in the Porirua New World Family2Family Appeal in June, Porirua Rotary have ensured that St Anne's Pantry have been donated $2,000 of groceries this year. The Pantry greatly appreciates, as do Porirua Households, the support that June and her Porirua Rotary Team offers. We thank you for your generous hearts.
Thank You Porirua Rotary
Porirua Rotarians have continued their support for St Anne's Pantry into the lead up to Christmas 2020.
Earlier in the year they supported the Porirua New World Family2Family Appeal and donated $1000 worth of Groceries for Pantry distribution.
Pictured are local Rotarians collecting donated groceries in Aotea suburb at the Jasmine Underhill Reserve on Wednesday 25th November - exactly a month before Christmas. People responded to a leaflet drop done earlier. Groceries to the value of $300-400 were collected.
Aotea folk will have another opportunity to donate groceries at the same venue between 11-1pm on Saturday 28th November.
