On Friday 28 March, the Starship Foundation launched an emergency appeal to provide care packs to our healthcare workers who have been working tirelessly in preparation for the challenges that lie ahead. In just a week of the appeal going live, we were able to bring the first 500 care packs to our frontline heroes thanks to our generous donors along with a number of corporate supporters and local businesses who answered our call for help. We are truly grateful to all those who have donated and will continue to donate to the cause. Our frontline heroes can’t thank you enough.
Foodstuffs and Gilmours Mt Roskill - In what is an incredibly challenging time, Foodstuffs
and Gilmours Mt Roskill made it possible for us to deliver the first wave of care packs to our
healthcare workers in record time. The speed in which Gilmours Mt Roskill sourced, packed,
dispatched and delivered enough items for 1,000 care packs was extraordinary. We have
absolute gratitude for the efforts and commitment made in support of our frontline heroes
as they prepare for the days and weeks ahead.
