FUNDS FOR FAMILIES
A fundraising initiative has raised more than $260,000 to go towards parenting courses for vulnerable families across New Zealand. The initiative was a joint venture between the Parenting Place and TheWarehouse and will allow more than 1000 parents to participate in a course designed to equip them with a range of parenting skills and help build strong family relationships. The Parenting Place chief executive Greg Fleming said the toolbox course could be lifechanging for parents. The sixweek course helps families facing complex challenges and helps them achieve their aspirations for their families. Funds were raised through donations in The Warehouse stores nationwide.
