Ponsonby Community Centre’s former Chair John Hill, received a special award last night at the Waitemata Good Citizens awards – Long Service to the Community. Congratulations John – well deserved recognition and thank you for all you did for the Community Centre!

St Stephen’s in Ponsonby finds itself in a very mixed socio-economic demographic. One way they thought to help connect these distinct communities, in a non-threatening way, was to set up a community pantry. A community pantry is a self-sustained food and sanitary items bank where anyone in the community may contribute and anyone in the community may benefit. Take what you need, and share what you can is the ethos of a community pantry.

St Stephen’s hopes that this venture helps those who are vulnerable by offering both food and sanitary items. A no obligation way to give back to the community and help out those who lack resources.
