Plea to dig deep for Christmas
For years, the Palmerston North Kmart Wishing Tree has been the top performing ‘tannenbaum’ in the country.
Last Christmas, generous Palmy-nauts donated an impressive 5951 gifts to the Kmart Wishing Tree appeal, and also contributed additional funds online (kmart.co.nz/wishingtree) or through the Kmart registers.
The national appeal has been running for 21 years, with the donated gifts distributed throughout the region to disadvantaged families by the Salvation Army.
The Wishing Tree is receiving gifts up until Christmas Eve.
‘‘We hope that people . . . give generously.’’
