Case study: ANZ employee member makes a difference to the life of Amy*
ANZ’s Hamilton-based rural manager Steve King felt humbled that he was able to make a small difference to the life of Amy, a seven-month-old girl with a life-threatening illness.
Steve is a member of the ANZ Employee Foundation. Last year the Foundation accepted an application from True Colours Charitable Trust for help providing support for children, young people and their families who are dealing with serious illness.
One of the recipients of the ANZ support was Amy. The funding enabled Amy to receive specialist care, counselling and support for a year.
Last year, True Colours Charitable Trust received $6,800 from the ANZ Staff Foundation to support Amy. True Colours CEO Cynthia Ward was appreciative of the support from the Staff Foundation. True Colours relies on do nations, sponsors and community trust grants.
“The generous support from the Employee Foundation makes an enormous difference to a young family that is dealing with an incredible challenge,” she says.
