Thank you Pōneke for the cans you donated!

Our ‘Cans for Fines’ campaign ran for the whole month of February and was a great success! We received 1309 cans in total,  brought by over 200 Wellington City Libraries’ customers.

All cans were donated to Wellington City Mission, especially for their Social Supermarket. This supermarket is based in Newtown, and is open and free to anyone in Wellington in need of some extra help.


With the extra pressure and challenges that Omicron brings, ‘Cans for Fines’ came at just the right time for us. The much-needed cans have helped to keep the shelves of our Social Supermarket stocked and we can continue to support those that need us. We were thrilled with the response and support of the Wellington community. From all of us at The Wellington City Mission, thank you!”
