Donations for Eastern Bay flood-affected communities
Donations for Eastern Bay flood-affected
We are aware that people want to kindly donate small goods and food. Welfare and evacuation centres do not require any donated goods. We are only able to manage financial assistance at this stage.
An official Mayoral Fund Give a Little page has been set up for the Edgecumbe and Eastern Bay of Plenty (EBOP) Mayoral Flood Appeal. Money raised through the appeal will be used to fund applications made to the Mayoral Relief Fund to assist people affected by this week’s flooding events. People can donate at https://givealittle.co.nz/cause/ebopmayoralfund
Offers of assistance should be directed to the Give a Little fund or by calling Whakatāne District Council on 0800 306 0500.
