The Christmas Shoebox pressie which is in its second year has again been very popular with local businesses like New World Porirua, Countdown Aotea, PaperPlus North City, New World Whitby and friends of Rotary.  They have sponsored items to fill 160 shoes boxes. Great support from local businesses collaborating with Porirua Rotary to give back to the communities.  Each shoebox contains books, stationery, grocery items, toys, games, sweet treats and toiletries. 
The shoebox pressies were distributed to Te Kura Maori o Porirua school and Tairangi school in Ascot Park, St Anne’s Food Pantry, Wesley Community Action Group in Waitangirua.  There are a few boxes to go another organisation before Christmas.   Lots of smiles and excitement from the students and families.
