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:
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. See more about the Wattie’s Cans Film Festival 2014
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.

InterContinental Hotels Group – The InterContinental Hotels Group fundraise for the Give a Family a Break Programme which allows us to send disadvantaged families on a holiday. Hotel Intercontinental Wellington, Crowne Plaza Auckland, Holiday Inn City Centre Christchurch generously sponsor the Red Shield Appeal, and Holiday Inn Auckland Airport sponsors the Christmas Appeal.
Fonterra - Fonterra gives generous donations of milk products to Salvation Army food banks throughout the year. 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. Workers in the garden also learn the skills needed to successfully grow healthy plants for their community.
Kmart New Zealand - Kmart New Zealand has coordinated The Wishing Tree Appeal for many years. Gifts are collected under Christmas trees instore and then distributed to children in need throughout New Zealand.
Warehouse Stationery – Every year Warehouse Stationery runs the ‘Helping Hands’ fundraising campaign. All funds raised are turned into stationery vouchers to help families with back to school costs.
