A huge thanks to Curate Church Tauranga for including Community Corrections in their much appreciated donations. In partnership with Stoney Creek, the church has put together some winter clothing packs filled with warm, cosy clothes!
The church kindly donated some of these packs for staff at the Hillier Reporting Centre to pass on to the families of people on community based sentences.
Probation Officer Louise was delighted to accept the clothing on behalf of one of the nominated families. “It highlights the importance of working in partnership with local agencies and how this can benefit people. It’s nice to think we can create not only safer communities, but warmer ones,” says Louise.
