The City has started a soap donation drive, to help mitigate the spread and impact of COVID-19.
The Disaster Risk Management Centre is facilitating the soap donation drive, and has called on individuals, organisations and businesses who are able to assist, to drop off soap bars at their nearest Shoprite or Checkers store in Cape Town.
Donations will then be distributed in the City’s informal settlements, care facilities and other organisations caring for vulnerable groups around the metropole.
The DRMC will activate its volunteer corps to assist with the distribution of soap as well as education and awareness material like pamphlets, posters, loudhailer announcements etc.
The logistics around the donation drive are being finalised, and all Shoprite and Checkers stores have been briefed to make drop-off trolleys available in store.
