L’Oréal New Zealand provided 22,000 care packages for Kiwis in need

Julia de Ruiter from The Salvation Army NZ

We want to say a massive thank you to the amazing team at L’Oréal New Zealand who rolled up their sleeves this week to pack 22,000 wellbeing packages for New Zealanders in need!

The wellbeing packs include everyday essentials like shampoo, shower gel and moisturiser, along with selected beauty items.

Part of L’Oréal’s 10th annual Citizen Day, the L’Oréal New Zealand team devoted a full day of work time, taking over the Vodafone Events Centre on 26 June, for a day of volunteering to support individuals and families in need. Auckland Mayor Phil Goff visited and met the team who prepared the 22,000 wellbeing packs.

Thanks again L’Oréal New Zealand!

New blog post: Neighbourly in the news!

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

We love seeing Neighbourly members mentioned in the news - and we've seen a few in the last few months. From a Neighbourly group that has united the masses right through to a neighbourhood who rallied to deliver a 250kg piano to two blind sisters - there is a lot of good going on in Neighbourly communities around the country. You can read about them right here in our latest blog post.
