Usave made a much-needed donation to the Ubuntu Soup Kitchen in Aberdeen to support their work in serving the communities of Aberdeen, Lotusville and Thembalisizwe.
The donation included essential equipment including a fridge, freezer, gas stove and cooking utensils. Usave also donated essential food items, blankets for the elderly, hand sanitizer as well as gardening aprons & hats.
Usave recently also donated seedlings and gardening equipment to support Ubuntu in establishing a food garden, which will provide the kitchen with fresh vegetables for their feeding scheme.
The Shoprite Group is distributing thousands of hampers following the unrest, vandalism and arson in KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng, which has left many people destitute.

People wishing to help communities affected by unrest can donate to the Shoprite Act For Change Fund in any Shoprite, Checkers or Usave nationally. The funds, which will be boosted by the Shoprite Group’s own R1 million initial donation, will be used by vetted organisations involved in relief efforts to help communities rebuild after the devastating effects of the unrest, vandalism and arson on many community members and their businesses.
