Fill the Blues Bus

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts

Our Fill the Bus campaign for 2022 has now closed and we are no longer taking physical gifts. Our monetary donation page will close on Friday 16th December 2022 at 4pm. Fill the Blues Bus will be back in 2023 so look out for more information about this, next year.

A message from the Blues

"Thanks to the Blues community, from the top of the North Island to the edge of South Auckland, we have been able to spread Christmas joy to more than 6,000 kiwi families in need. The generosity of our Blues whānau resulted in over 20,000 donated gifts for our young people. Three full Blues buses off-loaded the gifts at The Salvation Army Whangārei and Mt Wellington, to begin the present despatch around the Blues region. We are incredibly grateful for the giving and kindness shown for this year's Christmas appeal and we cannot thank you all enough. We wish you and your family a happy and safe Christmas!"

This Christmas, The Salvation Army have been delighted to partner with the Blues to bring more joy to children across their region. This Fill the Blues Bus appeal for the Northland, Auckland and North Harbour area has helped support so many families.
