Operation Blue Santa Taranaki ready to bring Christmas cheer to families in need
Operation Blue Santa is back, and organisers are seeking donations to help them provide gift baskets to brighten the lives of Taranaki families affected by violence.
Roderique Hope Trust and the New Plymouth Police Family Harm team have partnered up for the sixth year in a row to bring cheer this Christmas, and aim to deliver hampers to 250 families.
“First hand I have seen this level of generosity bring people to tears,” Roderique Hope Trust co-founder Michelle Ramage said.
“All too often the police are there to pick up the pieces and only see people in times of grief and trauma.”
