No place for rub­bish

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION -

Ed­i­tor,

What a won­der­ful thing Ol­lie Robin­son, aged 10, did – gath­er­ing toys for the chil­dren who may not have been get­ting a present this Christ­mas and pass­ing them on to the Sal­va­tion Army for distri­bu­tion. We could help in other ways. Some peo­ple think the Sal­va­tion Army shops are a cheap way to leave rub­bish and junk at the doors, mostly over week­ends.

At the moment the Sal­va­tion Army is paying $600,000 a year in tip fees from its 125 stores na­tion­wide.

This money could be used to make a dif­fer­ence and en­able them to help the com­mu­nity they serve with so many things, pro­vid­ing ser­vices to those in need. Let’s start the new year by putting rub­bish where it be­longs and not have peo­ple sort­ing this filth by hand.

Would you like it dumped back out­side your front door?
