The annual Good Hope FM Keep Cape Town Warm campaign kicked off on Monday, 12 May and the radio station has been collecting clothing, blankets and non-perishable food for those less fortunate people in the greater Cape Town area.
Last week Tuesday I popped in at the Pick n Pay kitchen in Kenilworth to join up with SeanO and his Ozone team for an afternoon of making soup for those less fortunate than ourselves and I took my kids along with me for two reasons: to introduce them to the concept of what goes into a live radio show and to make them aware that giving back to those who have less than us should be a priority.
The Ozone team (weekdays from 15:00 – 18:00) have been hosting a “Soup Heroes” initiative and have been collecting tinned soup and also hosted two cook offs, one of which I attended along with a few other bloggers and celebs, where all the soup made on the afternoon was handed over to The Haven night shelter the following morning.
So how can you get involved? Well, tinned soup can be dropped off at the SABC offices at 209 Beach Road, Sea Point. Other items which are also being collected include clothing (raincoats, beanies, scarves, tights, socks for adults and kids), shoes and blankets. The Community Chest will assist in distributing the donations to needy communities throughout the campaign.
Please consider donating any items you are able towards this campaign and help those less fortunate stay warm this winter!
