Share your act of kindness

“Acts of Kindess” is the theme for this year’s community winter project, driven by the management of Vangate Mall in Athlone. The excited group plan to share some love and warmth through their current food and blanket drive.

Gouwa Waja-Stemmet, spokesperson for Vangate Mall, says the collection of goods is set to benefit hundreds of poor residents from Athlone and surrounds.

“We are currently embarking on a much needed food and blanket drive to accommodate the poor. The collection activity forms part of several other projects we have done within our current theme, during the month of June, and we will continue with it until Tuesday 31 July,” explains Waja-Stemmet.

“The distribution of these collected goods will be done in the first week of August, and will be donated to several non-profit organisations in Athlone, Manenberg, Hanover Park, Silvertown, Bridgetown and Bontehewel, amongst others. We are looking at these areas first, as these residents are in the mall regularly.”

Several drop-off points have been placed inside the Vangate Mall premises for the public to make their contribution towards the project.

“We have four exhibition courts in the mall and will put up two boxes at each for the public to drop off their goods. The community don’t have to worry about the foods and blankets being stolen, as there are several security guards to oversee to it, and it is lockable daily. It has been a very slow start for our food and blanket collection, but it will hopefully pick up by this week. This project is a first for our team, and we are sure that with the communities receptive and very giving attitude – we can expect the project to be very successful.

“We call on the public and local business inside the mall to contribute at least one blanket and can of food. If everyone can do this, we will be able to feed and secure warmth to much more residents living in poor conditions,” she adds.
