Cen­tral Auck­lan­ders can help ad­dress needs in the com­mu­nity by vot­ing in a cam­paign. Z En­ergy’s Good in the Hood ini­tia­tive is a com­mu­nity fund­ing pro­gramme that awards more than $1 mil­lion ev­ery year to about 800 groups do­ing good for people or the en­vi­ron­ment. Four groups are cho­sen per Z ser­vice sta­tion and will share a $4000 prize be­tween them. The needs iden­ti­fied by lo­cal groups range from help­ing chil­dren in schools to help­ing vic­tims of do­mes­tic vi­o­lence. This year all groups were re­quired to have a lo­cal rep­re­sen­ta­tive in cen­tral Auck­land re­sult­ing in more small groups be­ing able to ac­cess the fund­ing. The pub­lic de­ter­mines what per­cent­age of the fund­ing goes to­wards each group by vot­ing with an orange to­ken each time they shop at Z in May.
