When you’ve got to leave home in a hurry, you don’t always have time to pack. This is sometimes the case for a number of women and their children who have had to flee their homes and seek help from Tauranga Women’s Refuge.


Tauranga Women’s Refuge supports and helps women and children experiencing family violence. They offer safe havens for these mums and their little ones, and their vision is for all women and children in Aotearoa to live free from domestic and family violence.


Sadly, New Zealand is ranked as the worst developed country in the OECD for family violence, and only about one third of all such abuse is reported to the police. This makes Women’s Refuge very busy, and stretches their resources thin.


As a way to uplift and help the families The Kids’ Store (and their generous customers) recently paid-forward 19 items of kids clothing worth $504 to Women’s Refuge. The mums and kids were very grateful.


If you want to be part of The Kids’ Store’s generosity, you can visit them in store at 330 Maunganui Road or head to their online store. You can pay-it-forward whichever way you prefer to shop.


Helping The Kids’ Store is corporate partner Holland Beckett Law, a law firm servicing the Bay of Plenty. Holland Beckett, is proud to be part of helping to meet a need in the community, such as the clothing needed by kids at the Women’s Refuge in Tauranga.
