Christ­mas shoe­boxes ready for de­liv­ery

Horowhenua Chronicle - - NEWS -

Vol­un­teers of all ages spent much of Mon­day morn­ing cart­ing shoe­boxes full of Christ­mas presents into Levin’s Memo­rial Hall.

Al­most 1500 boxes were put to­gether by lo­cal peo­ple and busi­nesses to help make Christ­mas a bit eas­ier on fam­i­lies who do not have much this year,

Once the piles of boxes — some prop­erly wrapped as presents with fancy pa­per — have been sorted they will be re­ceiv­ing a bow and then stacked by age groups, then street names.

On Wed­nes­day and Thurs­day this week vol­un­teers will be de­liv­er­ing these shoe­boxes around the district.

Christ­mas present shoe­boxes are pil­ing up in Levin’s Memo­rial Hall.
