OCTACAN 2019 – Help us Fill the Gap!

  • The Lower Octagon Dunedin New Zealand (map)

Join Presbyterian Support Otago for their 11th year of collecting coins and cans for Dunedin's busiest foodbank.

Help fill the gap by collecting and donating as many coins and cans as you can carry! Thursday 20 June between 7.30am and 2.30pm and help us to Fill the Gap, and our foodbank.

Can’t make it to the Octagon for OCTACAN? No worries, support us online at octacan.org.nz  $1 = 1 can. 

Our Family Works’ foodbank is the busiest in Dunedin and during winter demand is even higher. The foodbank currently provides families with about 10,000 emergency food items each month, a figure that will increase as the weather gets colder. 

If you can't make it to the Octagon on the day feel free to stop by the foodbank at 407 Moray place, next to First Church. Open 9-5 Monday to Friday. Phone: 03 477 7116.

“I can, you can, we can, OCTACAN!”
