Call for Volunteers: Help us pack Red Cross Winter Packs!

  • Red Cross Office 1 Magdala Pl Christchurch, Canterbury, 8024 New Zealand

Come and help us pack winter packs for vulnerable people in Greater Christchurch! Packs include things like blankets, hot water bottles, gloves, socks, hot chocolate, draught proof seals, slippers and other stuff which help people keep warm over the winter. Red Cross will deliver 1000 packs during June and there is still about 400 packs to be packed. Packs go mostly to elderly people, people with disabilities, families with small children and low income and families still living in earthquake damaged houses. 

Packing day is TUESDAY 2ND JUNE. We will start at 10 AM and pack until 12 PM. There will be cookies, tea, and coffee available. We are located at 1 Magdala Pl, Middleton (see map) with ample parking. Red Cross shares offices with SCIRT so don't get confused when you see SCIRT sign on the gate, it's more visible than Red Cross sign.

If you are keen, pleae contact Jana from Red Cross at jana.sladka@redcross.org.nz or 027 705 4682. 

If the date doesn't suit but you'd still like to help, contact jana anyway to arrange another time!
