Tawa res­i­dents in gen­er­ous mood

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Tawa Ro­tary Club held its an­nual Toot 4 Tucker col­lec­tion on two nights at Christ­mas, and the streets of Tawa were full of fire trucks and col­lec­tors for the Tawa Food­bank.

Ken Pear­son, in­com­ing pres­i­dent of the Tawa Ro­tary Club, said it was the most suc­cess­ful col­lec­tion yet.

‘‘ The peo­ple of Tawa were un­be­liev­ably gen­er­ous. They do­nated over 4500 food items and $870 in cash,’’ he said.

He thanked the col­lec­tors, in­clud­ing Tawa Ro­tar­i­ans and other com­mu­nity groups, and par­tic­u­larly Tawa Vol­un­teer Fire Ser­vice.

Ma­jor Keith Wray, min­is­ter at Tawa Sal­va­tion Army, said it was heart-warm­ing to see so many fam­i­lies want­ing to help neigh­bours at Christ­mas time.
