Good Neighbour has been able to keep up its work supporting our community and meeting people’s needs with help from Zespri’s digital operations team.

Taking a different approach with the resources at hand, the digital operations team refurbished older phones and hardware and then asked fellow Zespri staff to donate a nominated amount to Good Neighbour.

Not only was Zespri able to reduce electronic waste but it also raised an impressive $46,000 throughout 2023 and the start of 2024.

Good Neighbour general manager Renee Hanna has expressed gratitude for the donation.

“The donation from Zespri is crucial to the ongoing support of operations at Good Neighbour. It enables us to continue our mission of supporting the community's needs.

“Zespri is a great example of how businesses can make a significant impact on their communities with minimal expense.

“Every company has unique resources and talents that can be harnessed to support charitable initiatives. Whether through employee volunteer programmes, in-kind donations, or innovative fundraising efforts, businesses can make a tangible difference in the lives of others.

“We’d love to hear from any business that has an idea or wants to explore collaboration opportunities.”
