Our can collection initiative 'Cans for Good' with Wattie's is back for 2019 and we'd love you to get involved! The campaign will run for two weeks between Monday 5th and Friday 16th August and registration is open to all schools from kindergarten to high schools.
*What is Cans for Good?*
Cans for Good is an exciting national education and can collection campaign. Last year, Cans for Good was a huge success - more than 240 schools took part, collecting more than 70,000 cans to fill Salvation Army foodbanks.
The campaign brings together a charitable can collection drive and creative competition. It's supported by a set of teacher resources designed to engage children in fun, team-based learning experiences. The resources are available to download for free when you register online.
As well as doing good in your community, having fun and learning, your school can also win some great prizes! Along with a competition for the best can creation, we have introduced a fun new campaign where your students can show or tell us how they think Wattie’s Spaghetti is made. We'll pick the most creative entry from each category: Kindergarten, Primary/Intermediate and Secondary School. The overall winner will receive a Wattie’s lunch shout for their school!
Since the Watties partnership began in 1994, more than 1.4 million cans have been donated and this year through the support of New Zealand schools participating in Cans for Good we hope to achieve our target of 1.5 million cans!
Cans from each school will be given to the local Salvation Army or community foodbanks. These will help refill the shelves after the high winter demand period and enable schools around New Zealand to make a real difference to those in need in their community. To take part, register online by 31st July.
