Stuff the Bus
This is the Bay's chance to come together this Christmas and help locals who are finding it tough.
Help us Stuff the Bus with labelled presents (with the age and gender the present is suitable for) and non-perishable food for local Bay charities in the lead up to Tauranga's Christmas in the Park on December 9th.
We've got the bus, thanks to UZABUS. It's on the streets of the Bay from November 20th to December 9th.
Check the full schedule below to find out when it's near you and come along with your donation.
Charities that will receive donations include: Womens Refuge, Homes of Hope, Good Neighbour Trust and Shakti Womens Refuge.
Thanks to a stack of local businesses for their support including: First Credit Union, Pak n Save, Signature Homes, Pacific Toyota, Tauriko Business Estate, Stratus Blue, Downtown Tauranga, Gerrand Floorings, Guild + Spence and Base Up.
