FROM THE EDITOR
The Christmas tree is up at the Franklin County News office at King St, Pukekohe and we are welcoming donations of goodies for our annual Smiles for Christmas appeal.
Each year, this appeal is greatly supported by readers and we are hoping our wonderful communities continue to show their generosity in 2017.
While most of us look forward to Christmas, we may still worry about the minor stresses of sorting out Christmas dinner and deciding what gifts to buy our loved ones. But for some the stresses of Christmas take on a whole different level.
There are those who can’t afford to buy gifts, struggle to get food on the table at the best of times and face the prospect of spending Christmas alone.
That’s where we, and our communities, can help, with our Smiles for Christmas campaign with donations of non perishable foods and children’s toys going to Franklin Family Support Services to distribute to families in need. Julie Kaio News Director
