Donate to Kids in Need Waikato

Help us help Kids in Need

We love receiving donations from you and putting use to the things that are no longer needed. The kids that receive your donations are truly grateful. Last year we donated 1362 packs to kids in need around the Waikato. We're a non-profit organisation, and therefore we greatly appreciate your direct financial support. 

Your donation helps support the running of the charity and the ability to supplement donated goods in care packs with items that are more personal and special to the child's needs. This might be for children anywhere between 0 and 17 years old.

The Kids in Need Waikato Shed is open for donations:
Monday - Friday 9.30 am - 12.30 pm
Other times by arrangement

You can find the Shed at 118 Fencourt Road, Cambridge.
