Key partnerships are fundamental to the continuing efforts of The Salvation Army in our communities.
We would like to thank the following corporate organisations for their ongoing support:
Countdown - Countdown is New Zealand’s leading supermarket brand, serving more than 2.5 million customers every week. Countdown has been a supporter of The Salvation Army for many years and currently 120 supermarkets across New Zealand provide food parcels to food rescue organisations including The Salvation Army, amounting to well in excess of $1M in food donations annually. Countdown also supports our annual Red Shield Appeal and our Christmas Appeal, and together with their customers, have donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to help supply children and their families with food, clothing and essential items. Please see www.countdown.co.nz for more information.
Wattie's - Wattie's, along with Hoyts Cinemas, EVENT Cinemas, and Reading Cinemas, supports The Salvation Army each year with the Wattie’s Cans Film Festival. Kiwis can visit their local participating movie theatres on one night each year and swap a can for a movie ticket. Wattie’s then matches the number of cans donated and all cans go to The Salvation Army food banks.
Wattie’s also provides support throughout the year with food donations.
Crown - At Crown we are passionate supporters of The Salvation Army food banks and Family Stores. Over 40% of our customers also fill Crown Priority boxes prior to moving. That’s thousands of donated items a month collected and delivered by Crown to The Salvation Army to distribute to those in need. It is a privilege to be part of The Salvation Army's support team.

Fonterra also converts waste products into compost which is supplied free to community gardens in Auckland including the Army’s Community Garden in Manukau. Rich in nutrients, the compost is used to produce a range of fresh vegetables for Salvation Army food parcels.
