Goods left at store caus­ing prob­lems

South Waikato News - - NEWS -

While they are thank­ful for the com­mu­nity’s con­tin­ued sup­port, of­fi­cials from Toko­roa’s OP Shop said they were deal­ing with an on­go­ing is­sue of do­na­tions be­ing left at the store’s back door.

Vol­un­teer No­rah Burke is ask­ing that gen­er­ous do­na­tions be dropped off dur­ing the store’s open­ing hours.

Her call comes as goods left in the al­ley­way be­hind the store are be­ing dam­aged by win­try weather con­di­tions, stray­ing an­i­mals and op­por­tunis­tic van­dals.

Mrs Burke en­cour­ages any­one do­nat­ing af­ter hours to con­tact staff who are more than will­ing to drive to the store to re­ceive goods.

‘‘When peo­ple leave goods out­side, par­tic­u­larly if it is there over a week­end and of course with the fact that the shop isn’t open on Mon­day, by the time we get to stuff on Tues­day morn­ing things are pretty well ru­ined.

Some items have to be thrown out be­cause they are too dam­aged.

Re­cent items in­clude elec­tri­cal goods and foot baths.
