IT’S an occasion to honour and celebrate mums and this year, Northgate is partnering with Hobart City Mission’s ‘Small Steps’ initiative to lend a helping hand.
Northgate not only has the ideal gift for mum, but also a volunteer-run wrapping station to put the finishing touches on that perfect present.
Gold coin donations will be collected for gift wrapping, with every dollar raised matched by the Northgate team and passed on to Hobart City Mission.
Hobart City Mission’s Small Steps initiative provides accommodation and supported living programs for young mothers at risk of homelessness.
All of the money raised through the Northgate Mother’s Day gift wrapping will help make the accommodation feel a little more homely, with the addition of some basic items like bedding, appliances, towels and homewares.
Northgate centre manager Luke Jamieson said this initiative formed part of Northgate’s Mother’s Day campaign.
“It’s a partnership we’re very proud of,” he said.
“Target Glenorchy is also lending a helping hand by donating items to Small Steps.
“In such a supportive community, it’s great that Northgate can act as a central point of collection for their generosity.”
Northgate’s “Mum’s Hub” will be located outside Lowes from 8 to 12 May, including some gift inspiration from our ‘Gifts Mum Will Love’ display.
A limited number of free ‘All Seasons’ cookbooks will be available for Northgate customers, who can also enter to win a roast for the family thanks to Jo’s Fresh Meats.
Northgate gift cards will be available to purchase at the Mum’s Hub.
