The incredible organisation Gift of the Givers are always immediately jumping in to support wherever there is a need and they have been hard at work in flood regions of KZN.
Last week they put out an urgent request for drinking water donations which they would take up to help many areas in dire need.
As always Helderberg community spirit kicked into action; overnight we had a local transport company Space Labs willing to take all donations from Helderberg through to the CTICC drop off.
A village coffee shop, Sage & Thyme (renowned for its food and service), instantly became a “waterhole” with staff and clients enthusiastically in support, while accumulating hundreds of bottles around their feet.
Many schools and local businesses donated and became collection points, in particular Mondeor Eco School, De Hoop Primary and Somerset College.
HelderbergFM 93.6 promoted this actively, enabling a lot to happen in a couple of days, and from zero to 966 bottles in four days is quite a feat.
Our incredible donations are part of the thousands on their way up to KZN, and we as Helderberg community can be very proud to have sent so much love and support all the way up the coast to our fellow South Africans.
