In This Together

'In This Together’ is a group of community minded volunteers who came together in a time of crisis to help those in need.  This network was set up quickly in response to the COVID-19 Crisis. It has been fantastic to see the group of volunteers that we have been able to vet and set in motion to help the vulnerable in our community. 

Thank you to our volunteers for collecting shopping for the vulnerable in our community, for delivering foodbank parcels, and for all the phone calls made to those alone and isolated. We were extremely grateful to have such a large pool of volunteers put their hands up to help out, that we didn't end up needing to use all of them. It is a such a great testament to the generosity and neighbourliness of our wonderful community here in Omokoroa.

Going forward we need to look at how we best use the structure and network that has been set up for our community. We are currently working with the Community Board to update our Community Civil Defence Response Team and are also looking at where there may have been any gaps in our response and how we can do better next time, should the need arise. 

We have a wonderful community and it has been great to see us all pull together and help each other at this time.

Please continue to be aware of those around you as many have lost their jobs and others will likely too over the coming months. We know that it is often very hard to ask for help even when you're desperate. The Omokoroa Community Foodbank and our team of volunteers exists for this very reason and for difficult times such as there.

Please contact the church office if you or anyone you know is in need of a helping hand... or even just a phone call from a friendly community neighbour to check in.
