Fund assists with new equipment for Garden Route volunteer fire fighting units
As part of the the Shoprite Group’s #ActForChange initiative, the Disaster Relief Fund donated more than R120 000 to the Plett People's Purse NPC (Non-Profit Company) this week. The money will be used to assist volunteer fire fighting units along the Garden Route to replace some of the equipment they lost in the devastating fires of June 2017.
The Disaster Relief Fund provides customers with a platform to easily donate R5 or more at any Shoprite or Checkers till point across South Africa. Following the fires in Knysna and Plettenberg Bay, all proceeds generated via the Fund during the month of June were raised in aid of those affected.
The Shoprite Group is committed to supporting and reaching out to local communities, and donated hundreds of thousands of Rands in goods and kind to assist the thousands of people who were affected by the Knysna Fires.
