The Women’s Refuge is where women run to with their children when they don’t feel safe at their homes. Sometimes they don’t leave with anything except their children. Christmas Shoebox Aotearoa deliver presents to the children at the Women’s Refuge because they might not get presents on Christmas Day. We delivered 20 presents to the children at the Women’s Refuge. The year 7&8’s worked in groups to fill and wrap the boxes. There were things like hair clips, books, all sorts of toys and hand knitted scarves.

All of the boxes were wrapped in Christmas paper with Christmas decorations.

We felt like Santa Claus delivering the presents!
