As September is fast approaching it’s high time Operation Christmas Hampers begins to move up a gear.
Our Facebook page has a new admin so if you’re on Facebook like the page to get regular updates. As some of you know, the planning for the Operation takes most of the year and this year is no exception. We have made some changes to our operating model including setting up ourselves as a not for profit.
On the logistics front we are seeking a hub to base ourselves from in the week or so leading up to Christmas. We have been long associated with Zion church however with their long term project we will need a new home base.
Planning is underway for our food drives later in the year and we have had some talented new people join the committee. They bring some great organisations with them. We are hoping to return to our more traditional method of collecting food donations by having the helpers and police car collecting in the streets as we have in past years. If you would like to participate this year, there are a number of ways to help; for example having a food donation box at work.
