Thank you Wattie's

Julia de Ruiter from The Salvation Army NZ

We want to say a heartfelt thank you to Wattie’s NZ and the 150 schools who took part in this year's Cans for Good campaign. Thanks to the incredible effort of students, teachers and whānau, over 30,000 cans were collected and will make a huge difference to Salvation Army foodbanks around Aotearoa.

Wattie’s generously donated a further 25,000 cans taking the total number collected to over 56,000 cans.
