Marae launches hokohoko outlet
Papakura Marae has set up a Hokohoko shop to give away clothes, homeware and kai to those in need.
Marae CEO Tony Kake says goods like shoes, warm clothes and even Olympic and Commonwealth Games memorabilia have been donated by local firms and the community.
He hopes it will help struggling whanau as they head into the festive season.
"It's just our community passing it on. It's like the old style, when you have a spare bag of spuds, you pass it over the fence. We are doing that on a community scale," Mr Kake says.
Open days for the hokohoko shop will be made on the marae's Facebook page.
