Donations help fill up foster kids’ backpacks
Palmerston North Heartland Lions Club community committee organised a collection of new items to donate to Fostering Kids Manawatu¯ .
The club presented the donations to Fostering Kids Manawatu¯ co-ordinator Judy Williams at an evening last week where Bliss Bees director Matt Telfer was guest speaker.
The items to be donated included pyjamas, T-shirts, toothbrushes, shampoo and other personal items, socks, toys, pads, pencils, nappies and baby products.
The club said the items will be put into backpacks and distributed to foster children aged 0-16 years when they go to a new home.
