HEART PARCELS, WELLINGTON
Heart Parcels is a non-profit organisation founded by Parris Quinn, Contiki's 2019 Changemaker, providing weekly nourishing, hot meals and tasty desserts to the homeless community living on the streets in Wellington, New Zealand. Alongside the meals, Heart Parcels also provides warm clothing, blankets and toiletries gifted from the local community. On Contiki's New Zealand trips, travellers visit a local Wellington cafe and are treated to a brownie created by Heart Parcels, with all proceeds from the brownies going to feeding the homeless in Wellington. They're met by Parris or one of her associates, who talk more about the project and what they do, and - if they want to - are invited to help Parris hand out hot meals.
