Gen-i staff get green-fingered for schools

Six hundred Gen-i staff took time out this week to plant fruit trees and vegetable gardens at six South Auckland primary schools.

The schools included Bairds Mainfreight Primary School, St John the Evangelist School, Mayfields School, Flat Bush School, Wymondley School and Rongamai School.

The voluntary work called DigIT is part of the company’s ANZ conference, Absolute 10, which is taking place in Auckland. The work was arranged through children’s charity Variety.

Gen-i staff created gardens that help to foster healthy eating and food production. The company donated garden tools so the children can look after the gardens themselves.

It is also giving computer equipment and IT support to each of the schools.

Marketing and strategy manager Jo Allison says volunteering is a great way for staff to contribute to the community.

“With people’s lives getting increasingly busy, it’s often challenging for our people to make the time to volunteer for community work. We’ve taken advantage of our annual conference to provide an opportunity for staff to take time out and help improve other people’s lives.”
