Coromandel MP: Let’s All Help Paeroa Kindy Together

Coromandel MP Scott Simpson is collecting supplies for Paeroa Kindergarten after it was burnt down last week – and he wants your help.

‘Thoughtless idiots burnt down Paeroa Kindergarten and now a whole lot of little kids have lost their beloved kindy. I’ve been to see the site and it’s very distressing to see the burned-out building. This is terribly sad for the entire community,’ MP Scott Simpson says.

‘Together we can help the Kindergarten get back on track, and I’m asking for your support. The Kindergarten needs art and craft supplies, as well as toys, books, and dress-up clothes.’

‘As a community we can all help the kindy get back on its feet. If you’re in Thames, please drop donations to my office at 614 Pollen Street, or at branches of Harcourts Real Estate in Paeroa, Te Aroha, and Waihi. I will deliver it all in a few weeks when the teachers are setting up at a new temporary location,’ Mr Simpson says.

The kindergarten also has a fundraising page at https://givealittle.co.nz/cause/paeroakindergartenfire
