“As a result of this pandemic, people are without jobs and there will not be enough money for people to meet their basic needs. I want to help in the community where it will make the biggest difference.“
When Nancy Mills gives, she gives with heart, wanting to know that it’s going to be of real help to individuals and families in the community.
This year, because of the fallout from Covid-19, Nancy found herself having to cancel an upcoming trip to the USA. She says that while the cancellation was disappointing, she could also see that her community’s needs this year would be increasing, so she decided to donate the funds she would have spent on her travels to her local community, via Te Karaka Foundation.
Nancy’s donation will go into Te Karaka’s Taranaki Community Fund to be put to use in her community where the needs are going to be the greatest over the coming months ahead.
“ If one person or family will benefit, then my donation, no matter how much, will have been worthwhile. ”.
Nancy says that she gets great joy from giving. “My parents were very generous to others in need. When I give, I always think of them and of how pleased they would be to see me following in their footsteps.”
“Nancy has been a consistent and generous supporter of Taranaki causes from Te Karaka’s inception. I am not surprised at her early response to the needs that Covid-19 will generate,” says Te Karaka Chair Ken Horner.
