Meridian Energy gifts 2,000 beanies

Tuesday, October 3, 2017

With some extremely cold and frosty starts during the winter months, it is so important that kids are warm, healthy and able to get to school in a position to learn.

Our generous Principal Partner, Meridian Energy, kindly donated 2,000 fleece lined beanies to children in 32 KidsCan partner schools in the colder regions of New Zealand.

Meridian staff went along to Linwood North School and Northcote School in Christchurch, and Avalon Intermediate in Wellington to deliver these beanies.

They had individually named the beanies helping to avoid the spread of head lice amongst the students, and giving them something special to call their own.

Thanks so much Meridian, it’s heart-warming when something as simple as a beanie can make kids smile.
