The voting phase of the annual community funding programme is over and Z is this month sharing the funds among hundreds of Kiwi groups doing good for people or the environment in the area around every Z service station.
In May customers got an orange token every time they shopped at Z to vote for how funding should be split between the four groups supported at each Z service station. With more than a millions transactions a month at Z, more than a million voting tokens were given out.
All groups will get a proportion of the $4,000 allocated to each service station, in addition to a share of the $190,000 raised on the first ever Good in the Hood national fuel day, where 6c from every litre bought on the day was donated to Good in the Hood groups.
Z Community Manager, Gerri Ward, said voter turnout showed how much New Zealanders care about supporting needs in their communities.
“The needs each group will address with the funding were identified on the voting units so customers could see how their vote would make a difference in their local area.”
“The more than 200 Z service stations around New Zealand each have a further $1,000 to support other local groups and projects this year as part of Z’s commitment to giving back to the neighbourhoods we operate in,” Gerri said.
The voting results for each service station will be available on Z’s website from 09 July: https://z.co.nz/about-z/find-us/map z.co.nz. To find out more about Good in the Hood head to www.z.co.nz/goodinthehood.
