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 truely grateful. Last year we donated 1000 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.
Make Christmas special
for child this year
Christmas is a time for giving, but sadly some children never receive. Kids in Need Waikato believe that every child should experience the joy of opening a gift on Christmas morning, and that's where we need your help. You can choose to help by:
- Donating a new gift
- Donating money for us to purchase a gift on your behalf
- Dropping a gift off at one of our drop-off points in town
