During March, we raise funds to enable us to deliver services to the most vulnerable people in our communities. Services such as delivering Meals on Wheels, helping to settle new Kiwi's in Aotearoa New Zealand and training our Disaster Response volunteers to support with rescue and recovery during a disaster.... and more

This year we are doing our appeal a bit differently and we need your help! Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 and the Red Traffic Light settings we can’t go ahead with our physical street collection so instead, we are partnering with www.Chooza.com... to bring you our "List, Sell, Give Hope!" campaign.

It’s easy! You list it, someone else buys it and together you give hope by supporting New Zealand Red Cross. With your help, we can continue to support those most vulnerable in our communities when they need it most!

So, this weekend why not find some items lying around home that you have been meaning to rehome or donate to charity and add them to Chooza. New or pre-loved, if it is worth $14.99 or more you can find a new home for it and support New Zealand Red Cross at the same time.

With every item listed you will get a donation receipt for the sale price that you can claim back as a taxable donation, so it is a win-win-win situation.

Check out www.chooza.com... to find out more!

Starting in February 2022, the service is expanding with a need for new drivers. If this sounds like something you might like to get involved in, please get in touch to volunteer with us today!

New Zealand Red Cross is all about “good people doing good things” – and the Hastings Meals on Wheels volunteer drivers have been doing just that for 60 years.
The Hastings service started from humble beginnings in November 1961 when 24 hot meals were delivered each day by a small team of volunteers of the local Red Cross branch. It was through realising the plight of vulnerable people in our community that led the service to grow rapidly with more than 250 volunteers delivering meals during the 1980’s. Meals on Wheels in Hastings has a rich history of service and a deep connected to the community.

Today, the service spans across all of Hastings, Havelock North and Flaxmere, over 4,500 hot meals per month and in the last year 72,890 hot meals.
