Please give a little food, money, or time!

The COVID-19 pandemic shows we are all connected: No one is safe until we are all safe.

We are all in this together and we are all suffering, in similar ways and to different degrees. Spatially distanced, but socially united, we can support one another in so many ways.

You can help us with:

community-based feeding schemes in the area which between them feed over a 1000 people in old age homes, children’s homes, transitional housing, households which are not coping and homeless people
the Sew4Safety project which needs to purchase fabric to make masks that are distributed to essential service workers and others in need in the Woodstock area and other initiatives supporting the vulnerable groups.

To give money

You can use SnapCan or EFT — if you want the money to go to a particular cause, put it in the reference (eg ‘feeding’ or ‘masks’).
Better yet, create a beneficiary and support your neighbourhood with a small amount every week or month.
Every penny raised will go to your chosen cause!

To give food

We are also looking for food donations to support the Woodstock / Salt River Upliftment Project’s feeding scheme which is cooking meals at the William St Mosque and distributing to homeless people and others in dire need. Currently they are requesting vegetables, rice, meat, seasoning, bread, eggs, 20L buckets and 1 and 2 litre ice cream containers, cooking gas, and petrol.
