EnviroNZ gets Behind Cancer Society
(EnviroWaste belongs to the EnviroNZ group of companies)
Waste collection in South and West Auckland is about to get a lot more colourful with the unveiling of a new EnviroNZ waste collection truck design in support of Cancer Society.
Today the team at EnviroNZ’s Onehunga corporate office got a sneak peek of the new sunshine yellow and dark blue waste collection truck, featuring a giant Cancer Society daffodil. The truck is part of a new sponsorship relationship with Cancer Society Auckland Northland that will see EnviroNZ provide sponsorship to the Society over the next two years. The sponsorship will go towards funding research into the causes and treatment of cancer, as well as providing support services for people affected by cancer.
EnviroNZ managing director, Gary Saunders, says the 900-strong EnviroNZ team is proud to support a cause that touches the lives of so many.
“Cancer does not discriminate. We all know someone who has been touched by cancer whether it be a family member, friend or colleague. EnviroNZ is proud to support Cancer Society and the incredibly important work they do in supporting Kiwi’s living with cancer. We hope this will just be the beginning of a long-term partnership with Cancer Society,” he says.
Cancer Society Auckland Northland Chief Executive, John Loof, says support from organisations like EnviroNZ is important in helping to support the Society’s crucial work.
“We love the bright and beautiful truck and can’t wait to see it out on the streets raising awareness for Cancer Society. Support from organisations like EnviroNZ helps us to continue to provide free practical support and care to people going through cancer treatment, fund vital cancer research and helps to reduce cancer for future generations.”
The truck was unveiled at a fundraising event at EnviroNZ’s corporate office today, the day before Daffodil Day on Friday 26 August.
EnviroNZ encourages everyone to give generously to street collectors for Daffodil Day, at their local ANZ branch or donate online at www.daffodilday.org.nz
