This winter season many persons and families are more vulnerable than they have been in decades. South Africa is currently facing the realities of extreme cold this winter. Families are struggling to put food on the table, having lost jobs and sources of livelihood. The Covid-19 pandemic has exacerbated this.  Now more than ever is when “help” is needed.

Saveways Crescent Centre in partnership with The Al-Asad Charitable Foundation will be running a Winter Warmth Blanket and Canned Food Collection Drive from the 13th of July until the 12th of August 2021.

Our goal is to spread the joy of warmth this winter by encouraging the community to donate gently used or new blankets and canned food items to this worthy cause. Canned food items include beans, samp, vegetables, canned fish, peanut butter, and jam.

Donations can be dropped off:

In the collection trolleys located in the Checkers Foyer at Saveways Crescent Centre.

Donations can also be made online:

All proceeds will be distributed to local shelters and destitute communities.
