Life Education Trust
We’ve been a major sponsor of the Life Education Trust for many years, helping Kiwi kids throughout New Zealand take part in important health-based education programmes. More than 7000 children visit each of Harold the Giraffe’s mobile classrooms every year.
Books in Homes
Frucor has been a proud sponsor of Books in Homes since February 2003, supporting Dawson Primary School in Otara, South Auckland. This initiative was developed to help break the cycle of ‘booklessness’ and the 460 pupils are each given at least five books a year, which they get to choose and keep.
Sir Edmund Hilary Collegiate Sports Day
Since 2015, members of our Research and Development team in Auckland have spent a day running games and activities for the pupils of local school, Sir Edmund Hilary Collegiate. It’s a great way for Frucor team to get out into the local community.
Surf Lifesaving New Zealand and Starship Foundation partnerships
Frucor NZ’s h2go team announced partnerships with the Starship Foundation and Surf Life Saving New Zealand that will see donations of 10 cents per bottle purchased through participating petrol station.
Frucor employees are able to take one-day’s paid volunteer leave per year, which encourages staff to contribute to the well-being of the wider community. In 2016, team members from the Sydney and Queensland offices donated their time to help out at their local Foodbank.
Frucor Australia is working with Oz Harvest, Australia’s first perishable food rescue organisation. Oz Harvest collects quality excess food from more than 2000 commercial outlets and delivers it, free of charge, to more than 900 charities.
