NZ Safety Blackwoods and KidsCan partnership hits $200,000 milestone
In 2019, NZ Safety Blackwoods established an official partnership with KidsCan and its Raincoat Program. In March 2021, this partnership reached an important milestone, having raised over NZ$200,000 for the program.
KidsCan’s mission is to provide the essentials to Kiwi kids affected by poverty so they can participate in learning and have an opportunity for a better future. NZ Safety Blackwoods considered several community agencies before selecting KidsCan. The partnership was chosen on three key areas: product (the raincoats fitted with one of NZ Safety Blackwood’s key category pillars); people (the partnership resonates exceptionally well with internal team members); and customer (meeting customers’ expectations of contributing to improving New Zealand communities).
Not only has NZ Safety Blackwoods raised a significant amount of money to help Kiwi kids keep warm at school, it has also provided over 260 volunteering hours for team members. NZ Safety Blackwoods is looking forward to continuing this partnership for many years to come.
