V OLUNTEERS Erica Balouza and Msizi Myeni help the Robinhood Foundation to pack and sort through the amazing donations for The Robin Hood Foundation’s Soulfood campaign.

Kim Griffith Jones, co-ordinator of The Robin Hood Foundation said, “It has long since been a dream of our chairlady, Cindy Norcott, aside from the other community outreach projects, to host a Soup Kitchen in one of the less fortunate communities we visit. This month, we are going to host ‘Soup Kitchens’ in the rural communities of Ntshongweni and Shongweni on 17 August and 30 August respectively. “We are appealing to our community to get involved and help us to achieve our goal of feeding nearly 2000 people from these communities as well as sending them off with a Gogo bag filled with non-perishables to cook for their families for the next week,” she added.

“We are so grateful for the amazing flood of donations we’ve already had pour into our storage units but are still needing the following to reach our target, so please do get in touch as we'd be so grateful for your help in blessings these Gogo's and Mkulus.” Some of the items recieved were:
• 8000 variety of canned foods
• 1500 beanies
• 1900 blankets
• 1900 scarves
