Gift a Bag This Christmas

Help someone in need this Christmas…

This year, Milford Centre is proudly sponsoring Verve Magazine’s Gift a Bag campaign, in support of Auckland City Mission, Women’s Refuge, Dressed for Success, and the Red Cross.

How to get involved

Step One: Dig out those once favourite handbags and backpacks gathering dust at the back of your closets, beneath your beds or in your spare rooms.

Step Two: Fill them with necessities and toiletries for women and teenage girls, then add that personal touch in the form of a note for Christmas.

Step Three: Drop the bag off at Milford Centre’s customer service kiosk (see link to the map below).

Into one of the thousands of bags we hope to receive, a $400 gift card (generously donated by Milford Centre) will be included, so that one lucky bag recipient will be able to enjoy a wonderful summer shopping spree at Milford Centre.

What will we do with the bags?

The bags will be donated to Auckland City Mission, Women’s Refuge, Dressed for Success, and the Red Cross.

Last Christmas, Verve collected and donated well over 2000 bags, and we need YOUR help to smash the record this year!

Remember, for the majority of women and teenage girls who receive your generously gifted bags, it will be the only gift they receive over the summer holidays.

Collection ends on December 12th, 2019.
