Kennards For Kids is an annual charity initiative by Kennards Hire to help raise funds for various children’s charities.
To begin on 1 September, the Kennards For Kids charity drive will raise funds for, and awareness of various charities involved in making life a little easier for sick, injured or disadvantaged kids around Australia. The drive will continue throughout September and October.
As a family-owned business, Kennards is passionate about providing kids with the best start to life possible. It is this belief in the potential of kids that 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 charity organisations to assist the kids who need it the most.
Allen Besseling, CEO of Kennards Hire believes that it is vital for kids to be given every chance at success in life. The Kennards For Kids initiative was started to help the youth in Australian communities realise their potential.
This year, support is being extended 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 Kennards’ support, which enables the Foundation to fund clinical research and medical equipment to discover faster diagnoses and better treatments and ultimately cure many serious childhood illnesses.
