Good in the Hood
Get ready to vote
Applications for this year's Good in the Hood have now closed with thousands of local groups applying to receive a share of $1 million.
Each Z station will select four community groups to represent their hood, with customers able to collect tokens to vote for their favourites in store for a month this Spring.
Get your token and make your pick with every purchase at Z, because every vote counts!
Little token. Big impact.
Z is for New Zealand, so it just makes sense to support the things that matter in our local communities. That's why we created Good in the Hood.
Since it launched in 2013, we're proud to have been able to donate almost $8 million to local groups who are doing great things right across Aotearoa New Zealand.
We're beyond excited to be donating $1 million to local charities and community groups in 2022, with our customers able to vote for their favourites when they visit us.
How it works
Through Good in the Hood, each of Z’s service stations will choose four different community groups to support, giving away a total of $4,000 at every site.
Customers who shop in store are given an orange token to pop in one of the four boxes, voting for their favourite local group. The money is split between all participating groups based on the number of votes each receives.
In addition to the $4,000 every Z service station has an additional $1000 to be used by local retailers throughout the year to support other neighbourhood initiatives.
This year, Good in the Hood is split into three phases.
