Fill a bucket with cheer and help the homeless

The Groote Schuur Community Improvement District (GSCID) is calling on the public to support its annual Christmas Bucket Drive.

The campaign helps to spread a little Christmas cheer for homeless people in the area.

GSCID manager Nina Farrell said the buckets would be handed out to participants in the Straatwerk programme during the annual Christmas party for the homeless on Friday December. “We are very grateful to those corporates and individuals who have supported this initiative in the past and we hope this year will bring similar support,” said Ms Farrell.

Non-perishable goods such as tinned or bottled foods such as peanut butter, jam, fish paste, coffee, tea, sugar, soup, instant noodles, powdered milk, are the preferred items. These will be packed by the GSCID team in time for Christmas.

Donations can be dropped off at the GSCID offices at 93 Main Road Mowbray or will be collected from donors. The cut-off for donations is Friday November 30.

Contact Ingrid or Monique on 021 685 8185, or email or if you wish to donate towards the drive.
