Contact has offered Christchurch residents free LPG refills for Christchurch residents.
The Rockgas refills will be available at a number of service stations and outlets throughout the city.
Contact's General Manager Retail, Ruth Bound said there are practical things that Contact can do, such as free gas, for whoever needs it, wherever they are.
"We have worked with a number of service stations in Christchurch to ensure that people won't have to travel far to take up the offer."
The free refills are part of up to $1,000,000 pledged by Contact to assist the region. Contact has also promised up to $2,000,000 in support for customers who are experiencing hardship following the Christchurch earthquake and may need help with their energy bill.
