DHL Stormers helps unpack food delivered by Pick n Pay at old age home
DHL Stormers players Siya Kolisi, Steven Kitshoff, Scarra Ntubeni, Damian Willemse, Dillyn Leyds, Nama Xaba, Kwenzo Blose, and Chris van Zyl visited the Neighbourhood Old Age Home (NOAH) in Woodstock, Cape Town on 4 June to unpack 1,354kgs of food that was delivered by Pick n Pay's Feed the Nation campaign.
Pick n Pay and the DHL Stormers have partnered to help create awareness and raise funds for Pick n Pay's Feed the Nation campaign, which is supporting hundreds of vulnerable communities in lockdown. Each Stormers player has personally donated and collectively they've donated over R50,000 towards Feed the Nation, which to date has raised R52.2m.
Twenty-nine different items of food were donated to the old age home, including cooking oil, maize, baked beans, rice, milk, pilchards, soup, tomato paste, coffee, sugar, mixed vegetables, and vegetable curry.
The food will be used to make food parcels for NOAH's beneficiaries in distressed households in Khayelitsha, as well as for NOAH's 11 independent communal homes in the event of a complete lockdown should someone test positive for Covid-19.
