We want to say a huge thank you to Warehouse Stationery and their customers for their support of our Aspire Youth Programme. Over the past four years, Warehouse Stationery’s Add a Dollar Appeal has raised more than a quarter of a million dollars to help young Kiwis overcome their challenges and achieve success!
