Kids in Need Waikato provide care packs for children in care, personalised to meet each child's needs.
Kids in need can be anywhere from 0-17 years old and each care pack is special and personalised to the child's age, size and interests. It's about making a difficult time, just a little bit easier with a gift that has been thoughtfully put together by volunteers from products donated by the local community.
Kids in Need founded to support both foster children and their caregivers
Graeme and Linda Roil began fostering in 2014 focusing mainly on the support of newborns and emergency and respite care for older children. They were deeply concerned with the level of support for both foster children and also their caregivers. They began engaging with the community for donations and providing carepacks to kids in need. This included children placed into foster care and grandparents raising grandchildren.
