Monday morning on a usual week meant heading out the door to work.
As with much regret, I have resigned for a short period from being a volunteer at the Waipuna Hospice Mount Maunganui Shop. My priority now is keeping the Squire and elderly parents as healthy as possible. Including myself.
Volunteering has been fun. The retail work supports a much-appreciated service in our community. I do hope to go back to it as soon as possible.
If your local charity shops are still operating and receiving goods, PLEASE DO NOT take clothing or other items that have not been washed or cleaned.
During my last shift, we were inundated with so many pieces of clothing and household items in a terrible condition.
Be kind, and be more thoughtful as we push through this unprecedented time.
Kia Kaha everyone.
