Cans for Christmas was established in 2015 as a community building project between the Catholic Schools in Auckland. It has now grown Nationwide with schools in Wanaka, Alexandra and Wellington joining in.
Over the past 3 years we have collected approx 31,000 cans of Food for the St Vincent de Paul Society and The Mercy Hospice Centre. This means we have approximately helps over 2000 families with canned food over the Christmas period.
The project runs by providing schools with boxes, posters and a specific collection date, during September, when cans will be picked up and delivered for them.
