On be­half of the Tokoroa Food­bank trustees I would like to take this op­por­tu­nity to thank the many vol­un­teers who helped with our Food drive Sun­day 20th.

A huge thank you to the Tokoroa Fire Ser­vice for once again as­sist­ing us with the use of ve­hi­cles and their volunteer crews and fam­i­lies that as­sisted, St Johns who pro­vided a ve­hi­cle and crew.

Thank you also to the Miss A&P Girls and the Pa­cific League boys that were there to walk the streets to col­lect the food, the Catholic Womens league that pro­vided food for the the vol­un­teers dur­ing the day, and all the peo­ple who drove ve­hi­cles and walked the streets dur­ing the Drive.

Thanks to the Love Soup ladies that helped sort food at the fire sta­tion, and of course our won­der­ful volunteer ladies at the Food­bank house that work ev­ery week to pro­vide the parcels to those that need as­sis­tance.

But the biggest thanks of all goes to our won­der­ful com­mu­nity in Tokoroa who gave so gen­er­ously to our or­gan­i­sa­tion both at the Food­bank Drive and dur­ing the year to help us keep the shelves stocked.

Our only neg­a­tive for the day was the fact that was re­ported to us by the pub­lic, that again peo­ple were once again out help­ing them­selves to the food left at gates be­fore the of­fi­cial ve­hi­cles and peo­ple came around.

To the com­mu­nity of Tokoroa we would like to wish you all a very Merry Christ­mas and thank you all very much for all the as­sis­tance we re­ceive through­out the year.

We very much ap­pre­ci­ate it. pro­mot­ing re­spect­ful re­la­tion­ships.

Most men do not use vi­o­lence to­wards women be­cause they value fair­ness and re­spect.

Strength­en­ing the re­spect­ful val­ues, and be­hav­iour, of all men will make your com­mu­nity safer for women and chil­dren.

And men will have more sat­is­fy­ing re­la­tion­ships.
