Now is the time for Z customers to vote for what matters most to them in their neighbourhood.  

More than 500 groups doing good in neighbourhoods across New Zealand have been selected to be part of Z Energy’s ‘Good in the Hood’ programme, and customers are being invited to vote for their favourite group from 1 – 31 May at their local Z.   

Through the Good in the Hood programme, Z will contribute more than $1 million to neighbourhood groups and projects that matter the most to its customers.

Every Z service station in New Zealand will be supporting four neigbourhood groups each. These groups will receive a share of $4,000 per station based on the voting of Z customers. A further $1,000 per station has been also set aside for Z’s local retailers to support other neighbourhood projects throughout the year.

Over the month of May, every customer making a purchase at a Z service station (excluding tobacco only purchases) will be given an orange token and invited to physically vote for the organisation they wish to support.

The amount of funding each of the groups receive will ultimately be determined by the number of customer votes they get.

In addition, Z is this year offering an extra $250,000 to help “super charge” 2015 for up to 25 of the neighbourhood groups that have been selected to be part of Good in the Hood. Local customers and Z staff will help to decide how that $250,000 is distributed amongst the groups, and one of the ways that groups can be in with a chance is to poll the highest at a Z site in May.

A list of all the neighbourhood groups selected nationwide can be found on www.z.co.nz/GITHgroups
