We know that there are a number in our West Auckland who are struggling during this difficult time, and we’ve been looking into how we can best support the community during this time.
We’re doing our best to make sure that our team members are able to work and receive their regular pay, even if their regular place of work is closed at the moment.
In addition, we have started with providing the Well Foundation with a sponsorship to support in home health monitoring systems to keep people with long term health issues out of hospital.
We have also donated $200,000 to food charities to help them cope with the additional demand from West Aucklanders in need.
We know that the effects of this will have a lasting impact on parts of our community, so we’re working with local community groups to pull together extra help that is needed at this time. We’ll have more details to share soon.
