Do you have a desire to make a difference, to help create strong, supportive, sustainable communities for children and their families?  KCA reduces waste in our environment by encouraging the reuse of pre-loved clothing, footwear, linen, blankets and general household items in good used condition.  Our donors donate these items by dropping them at our various drop off points across the Northern suburbs of Wellington to Porirua.  We do have some volunteer drivers who cover the Eastern suburbs of Wellington and Wellington City.
