Over 2000 loaves of bread for the needy

2014-05-21 00:00

THE annual bread distribution took place at Jonathan’s City Spar recently, with 17 welfare organizations receiving their portion of the 2 200 loaves which were donated by Kay Makan.

Makan has been making this contribution, with the help of the Community Chest, for the last 23 years. He appeals to his customers to donate towards the cause and each year, the bread is given to him at cost price by Jonathan’s City Spar.

“Mr Makan always strives to lend a helping hand to the disadvantaged children and adults in Pietermaritzburg and surrounding areas and holds the work of the Community Chest close to his heart,” said Angie Narayanan.

She explained that the Community Chest manages and coordinates this community upliftment venture, ensuring that only the most needy welfare organization receives the bread.

“This is the 23rd year that we have been donating bread to welfare organizations via the Community Chest. We want to thank all role players in this initiative who make this bread distribution possible,” said Makan.
