BUY local - GIVE local

Christmas appeal organised by your local community newspaper, Hibiscus Matters, in partnership with the Hibiscus Coast Community House and the Orewa Baptist Church Christmas food drive. It’s about spending a few dollars this Christmas to help others in the community who are going through hard times.

Here’s how it works: While you’re doing your Christmas shopping, purchase a voucher of any denomination over $10 and drop it in to a collection box (located at Manly Care Chemist, Manly Village, Eddie Law, Top of the Plaza, Whangaparaoa; Beds R Us, Silverdale Centre; Dad’s Pies, Silverdale Industrial or Hibiscus Matters’ office, Tamariki Plaza, Orewa) or post to Hibiscus Matters, Unit G, 18 Tamariki Plaza, Cammish Lane, Orewa, 0931. 

Vouchers will be distributed to families in need with the Community House’s Christmas food parcels, and by the Orewa Baptist Church as part of its Christmas food drive. Vouchers can be for anything that will bring a little sunshine to a struggling family on Christmas Day – fuel, groceries, toys, electrical goods, toiletries, clothes and so on. Vouchers must be dropped into the boxes or received in our office prior to December 10. Together, we can make a difference
