ALVERTON – Sapopa Volkswagen crew donated food parcels, clothes and blankets to two centres in Tubatse last Saturday.
Ebenezer Orphanage and Alverton Disabled Centre were the recipients.
According to manager, Kagiso Mangena, they would like to continue to improve the lives of needy children.
The children were astonished when they saw more than 30 Volkswagens loaded with groceries, including mealie meal, sorghum, rice, sugar, beans, flour, tinned food, cooking oil, tea, potatoes and matches.
“This is a way of showing that we care for the community. We want people to know that Volkswagen drivers care. There is a notion that we are irresponsible and that has to change,” Mangena said. Some of the Volkswagen drivers came from as far as Lydenburg, with most from Praktiseer.
Other organisations that assisted with the donations included Nomcebo Printers, the Helena Mine engineering team and Regan Construction. The crew encouraged locals to join them in their quest to improve the lives of the disadvantaged.
