The Beyond Recruitment Wellington IT & Transformation team spent time with the City Mission this month making Christmas boxes to go out to corporate organisations for the annual Christmas gift collection. In total, we made almost 500 boxes, binding them together to ensure they could withstand the weight of all the holiday goodies that will eventually fill them.
Our time at the City Mission was a rewarding and learning experience. Gifts needed aren’t cans of spaghetti or baked beans, instead they’re looking for toiletries, spreads and treats. Even movie tickets or zoo vouchers are in demand. For those who would like to take part and donate Christmas presents, there is no need to wrap them as City Mission needs to see the age suitability of the gift contributions in advance.
All in all, the team had an amazing time working on this project, knowing that some people can enjoy their holidays this year better!
