WHAT used to be the Winter Woolly Week has since evolved into a full-blown drive and Community Chest, together with Caltex Eastern Cape Marketers (CECM), will be hosting their annual Winter Woolly Drive this month.

“This campaign is our biggest fundraising project and plays a vital role in our needy community. By supporting the Winter Woolly Drive you share some warmth with those less fortunate each winter,” said Community Chest EC PRO Colette Theron.

CECM, headline sponsor for the 2017 Winter Woolly Drive, has been involved in the campaign for more than five years as a donor and by providing easily accessible and safe drop-off points at various Caltex Service Stations throughout the Eastern Cape.

“We are pleased to be able to add a smile to a young child’s face or bring warmth and sustenance to the many less fortunate people in the Eastern Cape,” said CECM CEO Clive Berlyn.

“The CECM philosophy is to add value not only as the local fuel provider, but to support, uplift and care about the Eastern Cape communities around us. We support projects that help us to produce well-rounded people who will contribute to the local economy and we are very proud to have been involved with the Winter Woolly Drive for the past few years.”

“We would like to encourage the people throughout the Eastern Cape to donate much-needed warm goods, blankets and non-perishable food for the needy.”

Donations of clothes and cash can be made on Friday, June 30, at the William Moffett/Cape Road, M4/Walmer Boulevard and Standford Road/Aubrey Street intersections.

Donations can also be dropped off at the Community Chest offices in Clyde Street, Central, or arrangements can be made for them to collect on 0415821592.
