Generation Homes is joining the Whānau Āwhina Plunket family of sponsors.
'Generation Homes' purpose is to build homes for generations and everything Whānau Āwhina Plunket does is to support Kiwi whānau and their tamariki to thrive, so this sponsorship is a perfect fit for our communities,” says chief executive Kevin Atkinson.
The national sponsorship partners Whānau Āwhina Plunket with Generation Homes in the eight regions where its new homes are being created for families – covering Northland, Auckland North, Auckland South, Waikato North, Waikato Central, Bay of Plenty, Taupo, Rotorua and Kawerau, and Christchurch.
'Many of our customers are young families and we give them a place to call home, establishing neighbourhoods where children grow up in warm and safe houses, in fun, healthy and connected communities we have helped shape where children can flourish,” says Kevin.
'Supporting Whānau Āwhina Plunket is an important sponsorship for us as Generation Homes is built upon family values. One of our company values is to muck in and play our part – offering support, advice, and working with others to get the job done. That resounds with what the Plunket team is doing every day for thousands of Kiwi families.”
Generation Homes will give families a small gift of baby milestone cards covering the special moments from 1 month to 1 year as part of their initial Plunket Well Child check.
Whānau Āwhina Plunket chief executive, Amanda Malu, is thrilled to have the support of Generation Homes.
'We are all about making sure whānau are thriving, and we are delighted to have Generation Homes on board as a generous sponsor. The Covid-19 pandemic has been tough on charities and this is welcome news for us,” she says.
'The support from Generation Homes helps make sure Whānau Āwhina Plunket can continue to be a steady, compassionate presence for families, whānau, and caregivers, in person, virtually, or by phone.”
Amanda says this includes the incredible PlunketLine service, which is available for everyone, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, every day of the year.
