FreshChoice donates $5.3K to KidsCan
FreshChoice have teamed up with charitable trust, KidsCan to help provide kids in need with food, clothing and health items at school.
FreshChoice are very proud to have donated $5,301.90 towards KidsCan.
KidsCan exists to meet the physical and nutritional needs of Kiwi kids less fortunate than others. It’s KidsCan's mission to provide food, clothing and basic healthcare in schools to enable disadvantaged children to be more engaged in their education and reach their full potential.
Hungry, wet, cold and stressed is no way to start the school day (if it doesn’t stop them from getting to school) but for over 295,000 Kiwi children living in hardship that is the reality. This can impact their educational growth and lead to a lifelong pattern of underachievement. There is a way to break this cycle; by providing simple things like food, shoes, socks and raincoats, so kids can arrive at school ready and able to learn. Our aim is to prevent children in hardship from becoming adults in hardship by giving them the start in life they deserve.
