Shoprite matches donations made through #YellowPacketChallenge

Jun 20, 2017

Halfway through Shoprite’s six week #YellowPacketChallenge, Shoprite has donated groceries to the value of hundreds of thousands of Rands to numerous organisations across South Africa.

With its #YellowPacketChallenge, Shoprite is encouraging South Africans to pay it forward this winter by donating grocery bags filled with non-perishable, everyday essentials to individuals and organisations in need. And Shoprite is matching each donation made with a donation of its own.

These are just some of the organisations that have received goods from Shoprite as part of the campaign thus far:

  • Gelvan Park Frail Aged Home  (Eastern Cape)  
  • Ekuphumleni Old Age Home (Eastern Cape)
  • Care Alicedale (Eastern Cape)   
  • Phoenix Rotary Home (KwaZulu-Natal)
  • Feedy Needy (KwaZulu-Natal)   
  • Childhood Cancer Foundation South Africa (CHOC) (KwaZulu-Natal)   
  • Lettie Fouche School for learners with special needs (Free State)  
  • Hyssop Action Movement (Gauteng)   
  • House of Hadassah (Gauteng)   
  • House of Dorah’s Lil Angels (Gauteng)  
  • University of the Western Cape (Western Cape)   
  • Baphumelele Children’s Home (Western Cape)  
  • Ons Plek (Western Cape)  
  • Vuma Soup Kitchen (Western Cape)  
  • St. Joseph’s Home (Western Cape)

The #YellowPacketChallenge runs until 9 July 2017. Share some kindness by filling a yellow packet with everyday essentials and give it to somebody less fortunate. Share this act of kindness on Shoprite SA’s Facebook page or on Twitter tagging @Shoprite_SA using the #YellowPacketChallenge hashtag and nominate a person or business to do the same. Shoprite will match every donation made with a donation of its own to great organisations like the above mentioned.
