News: Thank you to TECT beneficiaries

In July, Acorn received a $15,000 payment from TECT beneficiaries who chose to donate their recent rebates during the July Special Distribution to the Acorn Foundation’s Vital Impact Fund.  Donors included many local individuals and several businesses who opted to support the community through Acorn.  The Vital Impact Fund made distributions in August to Tauranga Community Housing Trust – providing transitional housing services to people with serious housing needs, and Good Neighbour Trust – collecting and redistributing food to over 55 community groups each week, undertaking neighbourhood projects, and starting community gardens.  Both of these organisations are making a major difference in areas of great need – housing and food security.  We can’t thank you enough for your support; it really does make such a difference to our community!
