CALL FOR DONATIONS OF NON-PERISHABLE FOODSTUFFS/DONATIONS FROM THE UNITED SISTERHOOD
Due to the lockdown, The United Sisterhood has not been able to do our normal monthly food collections outside Pick n Pay branches.
Without these collections, we have been unable to supply food parcels for the families that we feed on a monthly basis.
In April and May, because of the lockdown, we donated the cash equivalent of a food parcel to our recipients.
Our organisation unfortunately, is not in a financial position to continue monetary funding in lieu of food, for these families.
We are asking for help from all of you.
By either donating non-perishable food items, (we can collect), or EFT any amount, (no matter how big or small), so that we can continue with our vital work of feeding the needy.
Food items needed:
2 minute noodles
Tea or Coffee
Milk (long life/powder)

We thank you in anticipation, on behalf of those who will benefit from your thoughtfulness.
REQUEST FOR SECOND-HAND ITEMS
On a lighter note, during the first few weeks of lockdown, I decided to do some decluttering (never seem to get time to do this).
I found items in my clothing cupboards that I had not worn for years.
Then the kitchen cupboards!! I found utensils that I used a long time ago, but now no longer find useful.
If you have bags of what you may feel are worthless items, please give us a call on (011 646 2409), or e-mail us (firstname.lastname@example.org). We will gladly collect your “unused and unwanted items” which could become someone else’s “treasures”, when we reopen.
All items will go into our second hand “boutique” and when we get back to some sense of normality, we hope that we will be selling again, to raise much-needed funds for The United Sisterhood.
