Kennards Hire has just kicked off its annual charity initiative, ‘Kennards For Kids’. While Kennards Hire says it ‘already makes your job easy’, it hopes to make life a little easier for sick, injured or disadvantaged kids around Australia and New Zealand.
Throughout September and October, the nation-wide Kennards For Kids initiative will raise money and awareness for carefully selected children’s charities.
‘As a family-owned business, Kennards Hire is passionate about providing kids with the best start to life possible. It is this belief in the potential of our kids that led the company to donate over $300,000 to various children’s charities and organisations in last year’s campaign alone,’ states the company.
For every hire made during September and October, Kennards will donate $2, which will be distributed around Australasia to selected organisations to assist the kids who need it most.
Allen Besseling, Kennards Hire chief executive officer, thinks it is vital that kids are given every chance at success in life.
“We believe that it’s all about breaking negative cycles early on in a child’s life,” Besseling emphasises. “We started Kennards For Kids because it allows us to help the youth in our communities realise their potential. It really is the most rewarding part of what we do.”
This year, support is being extended to charities including Stepping Stone House, Kids Xpress, Variety – the Children’s Charity, the Constable Care Foundation and the Children’s Hospital Foundation.
Support for Kennards For Kids and its charity-partners can be achieved by visiting local Kennards Hire outlets and hiring equipment throughout September and October.
