It's your time!

Giving back is not just about donating money. There is huge value and mana in the gifting of time, for good. We are excited to offer you an opportunity to work with the Village Trust Foodbank and the Puhinui Regeneration Project.

This is the first of many opportunities you’ll have to volunteer your time in the year ahead.

There are two beautiful te reo Māori concepts that these opportunities embody – Maanakitanga which means to extend love and compassion, and to nurture and care for the wellbeing of others. Kotahitanga is the concept of togetherness. Milford Mahi will give you the opportunity to embrace these beautiful concepts, alongside other volunteers that you might not typically work with during a normal day.

The Village Trust provides food parcels for Auckland families in need. This is a truly humble yet impactful charity that has been set-up and managed by Sir Michael and Lady Maliena Jones. It’s continued success relies on volunteers to prepare food parcels each week.

Address: 3/448 Rosebank Road, Avondale, Auckland
