Let your next home cleanout provide care for those in our community who need it!

Waipuna Hospice is putting the call out for your preloved goods to be donated to their local charity shops in Te Puke, Katikati, Mount Maunganui, Pāpāmoa, Fraser St and Greerton.

General manager of retail Jace Dowman says the more goods people donate, the more they can raise for the care of people facing terminal illness and bereavement.

“Every dollar we make goes directly back into delivering first-class palliative care in our community,” says Jace.

“We’re a very community-focused charity.

"It’s all about giving back to our community.

"Our shops play a vital role in fundraising, helping cover the costs of our service, and ensuring that anyone who needs palliative care can receive it without having to pay.”

Not only will your donations help provide care and support for families-loved goods also give a helping hand to others in need of day-to-day items.

“The cost of living is impacting everyone.

"We can see that in the community.

"I think we are in a good place in the community because we offer quality stock at a reasonable price.”

Heading into cooler months, Jace says goods such as bedding, linens and warm clothing are needed, but any clean and quality items are greatly appreciated.

Waipuna Hospice offers a free collection service of goods Monday-Friday, simply call 07 281 1755. Or drop items off at Unit I, 4 Brook St, Tauranga.
