Shoprite was quick to assist community members affected by the floods in Mamelodi and Hammanskraal, Tshwane this past weekend.
A Shoprite Mobile Soup Kitchen served cups of warm soup to the more than 400 people housed at the Mamelodi Community Hall, and another 500 people housed at Sebothoma Hall. In addition, the retailer donated food parcels containing cooking oil, instant soup, rice, samp, beans and other non-perishables for distribution by the Red Cross Society and #Not in My Name community organisation.
“Shoprite will always assist when a disaster strikes, especially in the communities we serve, and we remain in contact with the relevant organisations assisting with relief efforts in Mamelodi.”
