PAK’nSAVE supports CanTeen’s Annual Appeal

PAK’nSAVE supports CanTeen’s Annual Appeal

PAK’nSAVE is proud to be supporting CanTeen’s Annual Appeal which starts next week. (Monday 8 September – Sunday 21 September)

This year, PAK’nSAVE will be doing our part by selling donation cards at the checkout during CanTeen’s Annaul Appeal. There are three donation amounts available: $1, $3, and $5. The donation card selected by the customer will have its barcode swiped by the checkout operator, and the amount will be added to their grocery bill.

Steve Bayliss, Group General Manger Marketing for Foodstuffs New Zealand says that we wanted to make it as easy as possible for customers to give a little to a great cause.

“PAK’nSAVE is proud to assist in fundraising for CanTeen. PAK’nSAVE is enthusiastically behind supporting people in our community and if we can encourage our customers to give a little at the checkout, then together we will make a little go a long way,” he says.

CanTeen CEO David Pearce says it’s great to know PAK’nSAVE is dedicated to supporting our cause.

“CanTeen receives no government funding and relies solely on support from the community and generous partners such as PAK’nSAVE to allow us to continue to help young people living with cancer. We are fortunate to have passionate and enthusiastic partners who provide ongoing support that directly benefits young New Zealanders facing one of the biggest challenges of their lives.”

Volunteer collectors will also be on the streets and outside selected PAK’nSAVE stores on 19 and 20 September 2014.

CanTeen is the only New Zealand organisation dedicated to supporting young Kiwis aged 13 to 24 living with cancer either as a patient, sibling or bereaved sibling. CanTeen is a member driven organisation offering a national peer support network where members can share feelings, experiences and gain a little inspiration from other young people who have been there, done that.
