Supporting the Wakatipu Youth Trust
Recently, FreshChoice Queenstown donated $500 as part of their monthly Community Fund grant towards the Wakatipu Youth Trust.
The Wakatipu Youth Trust visit every school in the Wakatipu and with this programme, the organisation runs challenges and games during these visits.
Each group of year 7 and year students get divided into four tribes and they receive points for successful outcomes and positive attitudes.
Richie Hadlow, Youth Worker of the Wakatipu Youth Trust says “each term we want to give away rewards to the highest scoring tribe such as food, sweets, drinks. This would benefit the youth by encouraging youth engagement and building positive relationships”.
At FreshChoice, we are proud to support the local, New Zealand communities that our stores serve, that's why every FreshChoice store makes regular charitable grants as part of the FreshChoice Community Fund.
Further information on the Wakatipu Youth Trust can be found here.
If you are a community group such as a club, school or trust, or an individual with a community project underway or just need a hand, you could be chosen as your local FreshChoice supermarket monthly recipient.
If you wish to apply for a community grant, please complete the FreshChoice Community Fund Application Form (printable version) or use the digital fill in version. Once completed, hand it to the customer service counter at your local FreshChoice supermarket
