Are you doing good in your hood?

Groups doing good for people or the environment in the Bay of Plenty can apply to be part of Z Energy’s 2019 Good in the Hood community fundraising programme.

“Every year we get to meet amazing locals doing amazing things and this year is looking to be another great one in the Bay we love,” says Z Energy in a statement.

“Applications are now open and the four groups selected to participate at each of Z’s 201 service stations will all get a piece of the $4000 every local site will give away during the Good in the Hood voting month in September.

“We select our groups from site level so local teams are choosing who they want to support, our people love to meet and learn more about what you do, this way they can share more with our customers and help shine a spotlight on the great things happening in our community.”

Customers will determine what percentage of the funding goes to each group by voting with an orange token every time they shop at Z this September.

All Z stations around New Zealand have an additional $1000 of Good in the Hood funding to give away in their neighbourhood in the coming year. Groups also benefit from increased exposure and the chance to interact with their community at the local Z during voting month.

Groups can enter online at and are invited to pop in and introduce themselves to the team at their local station.

Applications close on June 30.
