HUNDREDS of sanitary products were collected by Boxer Cleary Park staff recently to assist the residents of Erica House Place of Safety.

The initiative, completely self-funded by donations from within each Boxer Superstore nationwide, has resulted in hundreds of sanitary pads being delivered to schools and places of safety around the country, including here in PE.

Each store that took up the challenge raised funds themselves, bought the items and delivered them to the chosen school or place of safety.

“This collection of items shows the spirit of Ubuntu which runs deep in all Boxer employees. By helping those who need it the most, our staff live up to the company’s set of ideals and values and make our country a better place for all,” said Boxer marketing director, Andrew Mills.

Cleary Park Boxer branch manager, Masonwabe Nqulana, said his store wanted to make a difference to the community.

“Many young women suffer because they cannot afford to buy sanitary pads for themselves. As community champions, it is the right thing to do for our community.”

Nqulana encouraged fellow retailers in Port Elizabeth to take up the challenge. “I challenge every retailer to participate not only once a month but when they can afford to. We are responsible for the communities we work in, it’s our duty as the community champions,” he said.
