Kennards For Kids is a nationwide charity initiative by Kennards Hire to raise money and awareness for carefully selected children’s charities.
Kicking off their campaign this year on 1st of September, Kennards hopes to make life a little easier for sick, injured or disadvantaged kids around Australia. The fundraising and awareness program will be held throughout September and October.
As a family-owned business, Kennards is passionate about providing kids with the best start to life possible. This belief in the potential of kids has led the company to donate over a quarter of a million dollars to various children’s charities and organisations in last year’s campaign alone.
For every equipment hire made during September and October, Kennards will donate $2, which will be distributed around the country to selected organisations to assist kids who need it the most.
Allen Besseling, CEO of Kennards Hire believes that it is important for kids to be given every chance at success in life. Besseling explains that the Kennards For Kids initiative was started to enable the youth in the community to realise their potential.
This year, the Kennards For Kids initiative will extend support to charities including Stepping Stone House, the Smith Family Scholarship program, Kids Xpress, Variety, the Children’s Charity, the Constable Care Foundation and the Children’s Health Foundation.
Lauren Granger, Executive Manager at the Children's Hospital Foundation in QLD is extremely grateful for the support that Kennards provides to the foundation. The Foundation uses the money to fund clinical research and medical equipment to discover faster diagnoses, better treatments and ultimately cure many serious childhood illnesses.
One can support the Kennards For Kids initiative and the charity-partners by visiting their local Kennards Hire outlet and hiring equipment for spring-clean, building or renovation projects throughout September and October.
