CMD announce the SPCA as their first charity in their quarterly charity drive

Albany based printing company, CMD Print Solutions has announced the SPCA as their first supported charity for their charity drive.

This year, CMD Print is selecting four different charities and conducting quarterly initiatives in an effort to give back to the community in which they operate.

“We have been operating as a business, servicing our local community for the past two decades”, explains CMD Print founder, Danny van de Velde.

“This community has allowed us to thrive and grow into the business we are today. This year, we really wanted to give thanks to the hard working people who work selflessly to keep our area great”.

“Building on our push for greener business practices in 2017, we have decided to select four charities to throw our support behind in 2018”.

As part of the SPCA charity drive, CMD Print Solutions will look to obtain essential items needed by the NZ’s largest animal charity.

A list provided by the SPCA includes items such as towels, cat beds, scratch posts, water bowls, fleece blankets and cooling mats.

As well as contributing to the charity internally, CMD will also be asking their extensive client base to help out.

“Through our mail list and our website we will push to get as many of these essential items as possible. A lot of people will have these items lying around. We are more than happy to arrange pick up of any goods which our clients (or the general public) are willing to contribute”.

Now, you’d think this admission would create a broad bi-partisan basis for compensation to those families who had been unfairly evicted, at considerable cost and emotional distress. Some people had lost their possessions in trying to meet the expense of the upheaval.

Not everyone felt so compassionate. More>>
