Substance Abuse Info evening @ Waiuku College Hall
Mar 30 @ 7:30 pm
Substance Abuse Info evening @ Waiuku College Hall | Waiuku | Auckland | New Zealand

Our Communities are our Homes
NZ Steel is committed to contributing to, and supporting the communities where we work, live and play.
Substance abuse has long been perceived to be a problem of the cities and alcohol abuse a problem in rural areas but illicit drugs have infiltrated towns of every size.
The cost to families and communities is too high, both financially and emotionally, to just sit back and do nothing.
NZ Steel has joined with a number of support services to bring you an informative evening and provide the opportunity to connect with these valuable services.
Sometimes just knowing where to turn for help is half the battle.
FREE and Open to the Public.

We would love to have more support from the local community this year.

Locals of all ages who took part last year told us they got a lot out of it and it made them feel good about their town.

If you and some friends would like to get involved, register by email above and be a part of this well organised, feel-good community day.

Wear a hat and some old clothes you don’t mind getting dirty.  We will be painting, sweeping, washing and weeding in the town centre area.

All equipment is provided.

There will be a sausage sizzle afterwards for all of our volunteers.
