BNZ staff will work on 179 Closed for Good projects in Auckland. There are more than 550 Closed for Good projects nationwide New Zealand’s single largest day of corporate volunteering
In Auckland alone there are 179 projects and BNZ CEO Anthony Healy was thrilled to see such a diverse range of projects submitted this year.
“Community groups do some amazing work throughout New Zealand and we take real pleasure in being able to give back in this small way, whether it’s by picking up a paint brush, planting native trees, providing budgeting advice or running financial literacy workshops.”
In Auckland Central BNZ staff will be helping out by:
Replanting gardens and creating an outdoor clay workspace at Mt Eden Kindergarten
Painting Grammar Carlton Rugby Football Club clubrooms
Restoring vacant land into urban native bush for the Onehunga People's Garden
Creating a track around the edge of the restored wetland next to Waiheke High School
Assisting with conservation work on Rotoroa Island
Creating an online forum for Girlboss NZ.
Stores being closed for a day won’t disadvantage BNZ customers – business critical staff including call centre staff will still be working for urgent services, and all online and mobile banking services are fully available as usual.
At Grey Lynn Library Hall, they helped the I Got Your Back Pack team and packed a year’s supply of bags in one day.
