Food Drive in aid of Gift of the Givers

Somerset Mall

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on our country's most vulnerable and distressed communities.

That is why we've partnered with the Gift of the Givers Foundation, along with our eight other sister-centres, on a national in-centre food drive to help in distributing much needed non-perishable food items.

The Gift of the Givers Foundation is the largest disaster response, non-governmental organisation in Africa. Many low-income community members have lost their jobs and do not know where their family's next meal will come from. The Foundation is therefore fulfilling a critical service during these times of uncertainty and we urge those who can assist, to please do so.

To-date we have managed to distribute 114 full trolleys of food and we will be matching every trolley of your donations with a trolley donation of our own. Our collections are being distributed to 14 Gift of the Givers centres across the province, that feed over 10 000 people each day. 

Food collection points are accessible outside Pick n Pay, Woolworths and Game. We ask that you assist us by adding canned and dry food items to the collection point, when doing your own essential shopping. If you are unable to visit the mall during lockdown, please try to support the Gift of the Givers Foundation by making a monetary donation - please use the reference 'Food Drive SM.'
