With the winter cold and rain making life more arduous for the less privileged, local property agents are making a difference by co-ordinating a street store initiative that will offer everything from free clothing and food to yoga classes and the chance to mark the occasion at a photo booth.

Working with several committed and experienced not-for-profit organisations and sponsors, this innovative event will be held at the Claremont Civic Centre on Friday 19 August from 10:30.

A smaller satellite event, offering clothing and food donated by Pick n Pay Fish Hoek, and a photo booth, will take place simultaneously in Muizenberg at the Living Grace Rehabilitation Centre.

“Working with the founders of The Street Store concept, we are encouraging the public to donate clothing in good condition to Pam Golding offices or at the Claremont Civic Centre on the day,” explains André Verheem, Pam Golding Properties branch systems and social media coordinator.

“These will be attractively styled in a pop-up store and shelter residents and others in need may select what they require.”

In collaboration with the Upcycle Project, visitors will also enjoy delicious food prepared by professional chefs, who will work magic with surplus food (not past its expiry date) donated by restaurants and food retailers.

In addition, Bootlegger Coffee Company and Ou Meul Bakery are donating 300 coffees and 300 rolls.

Woodstock lifestyle brand Lokoh will offer meditation and spoken word experiences, Yo-Yoga will offer yoga classes, and Khokela Promotions is assisting with fund-raising and marketing.

Shelters and Pam Golding Properties will be raising awareness of the events among residents, and flyers will be distributed two days before the event, adds Verheem.

“We are very excited about this pop-up, made possible through collaborating with several generous, compassionate and hands-on sponsors and the Haven Night Shelter.

“We encourage everyone to get involved in this worthy cause. Any donations of clothing would be very much appreciated.”

Pam Golding Properties’ southern suburbs branch managers, Lindsay Beck and Samantha Nel, and south peninsula branch manager, Sandi Gildenhuys, are delighted with the initiative and will be working at the venues on the day together with agents and staff.

“This is a very worthwhile opportunity to, with our sponsors, extend a helping hand to those in need in the south peninsula,” says Gildenhuys.

“We welcome any donations of clothing and footwear (in good condition) before the event at our offices in suburbs such as Muizenberg, Fish Hoek and Noordhoek, or at Living Hope in Muizenberg on the day.” V For more information about the event call 021 673 4200 or go to www.pamgolding.co.za/contact-us/offices.
