Society of St Vincent de Paul New Zealand filed an application to become a recognised as a Essential Service Provider, we’ve been advised applications take some time to process but in the meantime we have been given verbal agreement by the Ministry to provide food Parcels and/or goods deemed essential (no home cooked meals/baking) and to follow these guidelines:
- Assistance requests via phone or email only
- Delivery to doorstep or letterbox, no person to person contact
- Members to wear masks and gloves at the point where parcels are prepared
- Members to wear a Society name badge signifying they are members of the Society
This has been a fluid first week of lockdown and no doubt the horizon will change over the next, we will continue to keep you informed.
In the meantime if you are requiring urgent assistance please contact your closest shop using our shop directory.
