Applications close soon for Community Post’s donation of postal services

22 August 2014

New Zealand Post has received a steady stream of applications for the postage-included envelopes they give to community groups, called Community Post – and others are urged to apply before the close-off date.

Community Post supports non-profit organisations by assisting them with mail services to carry out projects that benefit communities in their region.

Community Investment Manager Nicola Airey said 1.5 million postage included envelopes are being made available across New Zealand again this year.  Assistance with direct marketing is also offered to groups through Community Post.

“The aim is to help community groups across New Zealand with the hugely important work they do in communities - in areas such as literacy and education, health and welfare, and collaborative projects with other charities and businesses.

“The applications are rolling in, and we encourage more groups to get their applications in before the cut-off point at the end of August.”

“We get some great feedback from groups that have benefited from Community Post, and we’re delighted to be able to do a bit to help out.”

Last year, Community Post provided postage-included envelopes and other related services to more than 2220 groups nationwide.

Sixteen Regional Community Post Boards made up of New Zealand Post representatives, local business and community leaders will evaluate applications from their area.

Organisations are invited to apply at before Sunday 31 August.
