‘Give a Kid a Blanket’ is a community action of kindness. We gather donations of warmth from across the wider Auckland area and gift these to kids and families in need through health and social agencies including public health nurses, Police, Community and Social workers.
We want recipients to feel both warmed and valued by the community, so only excellent quality pre-loved and new items donations thanks.
Our focus is to celebrate the acts of kindness many are able to make, and acknowledge the important work of those working with families from health and social agencies.
