Greerton Christmas Spirit boosts Food Bank

Greerton Village Christmas Variety Show

Greerton businesses joined forces with schools and local entertainers to raise support for families in need over the holiday season.

The shopping village’s Christmas show called for entry by donation of a can, and while not everyone remembered, around 200 cans were collected.

Instant Finance, Blomquists and MacDonalds helped keep the donations flowing, with all sorts of freebies offered in return for the donation of a non-perishable food item.

“We had a great evening and there were lots of families there for the entertainment,” says Mainstreet Manager Victoria Thomas.  “It was awesome that we could use the event to raise stocks of food for the Tauranga Food Bank.”

Anyone who forgot to bring their canned goods on the night can still contribute, by dropping off donations at Food Garden Cafe, in Greerton.
