Coca-Cola Europacific Partners New Zealand (CCEP NZ) new employee driven and community focussed programme, Support My Cause, has donated $30,000 to local charities in Aotearoa, New Zealand.
Support My Cause is a global CCEP employee-led initiative which gives all CCEP employees the opportunity to nominate a charity that is meaningful to them. The shortlist goes to an employee vote with the chosen charities receiving a share of money.
This year, CCEP NZ launched its first every Support My Cause campaign and the recipients of the 2022 Support My Cause NZ funding round are; Awhitu Landcare, nominated by Luke Graham (Business Manager – Foodstuffs North Island), Auckland Women’s Refuge, nominated by Brendan Podayko (Information Assurance Manager) and Bellyful West Auckland, nominated by Richard Davis (Customer Business Manager).
Managing Director of New Zealand and Fiji at CCEP NZ, Chris Litchfield, said the initiative gives everyone in the organisation a voice and empowers people to make a positive difference within their communities.
“The Support My Cause initiative is designed to support local charities, community organisations, or good causes that are meaningful to our people and support our communities in which we operate.”
“We’re delighted we can support and provide immediate benefit to those causes delivering such important work for our communities,” said Litchfield.
