Progressive Enterprises’ 2009 Fresh Future campaign will launch in the Waikato on Tuesday 4 August with a celebration at Waikato Hospital.
Now in it’s third year, the appeal has raised more than $2 million for NZ children since 2007 with $335,000 going to Waikato.
Over the next three months, staff and customers of Foodtown, Woolworths, Countdown, SuperValue, FreshChoice and Dick Smith Electronics stores will raise funds for 10 hospitals nationwide.
Waikato District Health Board is extremely grateful to Fresh Future because of the added benefit that money raised provides to Waikato children’s health.
Last year the DHB purchased a range of equipment with the funds including breast pumps, oxygen units, trundler beds, a lounge suite, reclining chairs, baby scales and glucose monitors.
These items went to Waikato Hospital children areas and out into the community.
Waikato Hospital staff are raising funds for Fresh Future by supporting a series of Denim Days.
On these days, staff are encouraged to wear jeans or any other item of denim and donate a gold coin to the Fresh Future campaign.
Clinical staff are encouraged to purchase a Fresh Future Denim Days sticker with their gold coin.
