Pick n Pay’s clothing and blanket collection drive to keep children warm

The impact of Covid-19 has been widespread across the world. In South Africa, increasingly vulnerable communities need support. Through Pick n Pay’s Feed the Nation, over 17 million meals have been facilitated. This huge humanitarian effort has been achieved by forming partnerships with organisations serving the same purpose.

The latest initiative sees Pick n Pay partner with Operation Smile South Africa to lead a clothing and blanket drive.

SOS Children’s Villages South Africa has been selected as one of the beneficiaries, and we are greatly in need.

Customers are encouraged to join the drive and donate any new or clean, previously loved blankets and children’s clothing in the collection boxes placed in 45 PnP Clothing stores across the country.

The collection bins will be available until end of September 2020. DHL Supply Chain and DHL Express has also partnered in the initiative and will collect all donations from stores and deliver them to SOS Children’s Villages South Africa. All donated blankets and clothing will be donated to vulnerable children and families in our care.
