From our Community Organisations…
“I definitely think that Christmas Box is a beautiful response to hardship at Christmas time.”
— Jo, Generation Ignite
“Every year we have mums that are in tears, we have families that have no food in the cupboards, that are just blown away by the generosity of Christmas Box…”
— Rob, Genesis Youth Trust
“Getting a box like that and seeing your kids open it, and even myself, I get excited because we don’t really get many gifts…my kids come home and they just love it!”
— Clestina, Christmas Box recipient

Packing Day is an exciting event where hundreds of volunteers meet to assemble the Christmas Boxes.
In NZ we are packing food boxes in Auckland, Whangarei, Hamilton, Tauranga, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin.
Auckland volunteer registrations open from Sunday 4 November. Other Packing Locations organise their own local volunteer registrations.
