PAK'nSAVE Silverdale owner-operator, Vinod Bhaga and his team were moved to get involved in the Nappy Drive project from Uber and Plunket. With many New Zealand families having a hard time financially, Vinod stepped up to donate thousands of nappies to people in need.
“We were really keen to get in behind this simple initiative to help young families as we head into Christmas. While we work every day to offer New Zealand’s lowest prices, we know that some people still struggle to make ends meet. It gives our team great pleasure to give families the chance to ease up on the load they bear and release some of their hard-earned cash for other necessities," said Bhaga.
“Kiwis are great at helping those in need and we come up with all sorts of creative ways to do this. The Nappy Drive from Plunket and Uber is a prime example. We were delighted to be part of this – and there’s plenty more to come. Like other stores in the Foodstuffs family we’ll continue to support foodbanks and other community programmes to ensure that many more Kiwis have the chance to enjoy Christmas.”
