Pack the Bus 2023

Pack the Bus is coming to a town near you! We need your help to pack the bus full of Christmas gifts for children and non-perishable food to make sure this Christmas season is a wonderful one for everybody. This November, the three Wairarapa councils, alongside Tranzit, Media Works, Property Brokers, Paper Plus and Mitre 10 will drive around the Wairarapa to pack a bus full of gifts, goodies and food items donated by the community to distribute to families in need this Christmas.

For those able to give this year, you can drop off your unwrapped gifts and non-perishable food items to any of the following locations;

  • Council offices at 19 Kitchener Street Martinborough before 4.00pm on Friday 24 November
