In your neighbourhood

Now all the votes are in and counted, we’ve shared $1 million across Aotearoa to local charities and groups!

Thanks to the little token, our donations are getting put to good use in local communities, supporting initiatives like delivering kai and inspiring young musicians.

This year, we partnered up with the AM Show and host William Waiirua to share some of our groups’ stories. To explore the great work they are doing in your neighbourhood, click here.

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 $10 million to local groups who are doing great things right across Aotearoa New Zealand. 

We are beyond excited to be donating $1 million to local charities and community groups in 2023, 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 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 a further $1,000 to be used by local retailers throughout the year to support other neighbourhood initiatives.
