Kaya FM Winter Warmer
We know that with winter comes the bitter cold. But for some it also brings hardships. KayaFM together with Gift of the Givers Foundation took the initiative to help turn things around. By keeping the homeless and impoverished citizens warm this winter. The Winter Warmer Kicked off on the streets targeting motorists – The aim was to create awareness of the campaign and get listeners to participate by donating blankets, non perishables and clothes.
Kaya FM together with Gift of the Givers set up a Soup Kitchen outside The Bassline in Newtown. The Soup Kitchen was open for a month between 12h00 and 15h00. The purpose of the soup kitchen was to serve the homeless people in and around the City.
BLANKET DRIVE & MOBILE SOUP KITCHEN
We received over 2000 blankets to donate to charities in and around Johannesburg. We saw the need to visit some of the Organisation whose primary function is to provide aid and shelter to the less fortunate. Some of the homes we visited were:
- Ma Mohau orphanage (Vosloorus)
- MES Impilo
- Soweto home for the aged
- Takalani Home of the Mentally Challenged
The winter warmer campaign brought many smiles to many faces, warmed peoples hearts and also reminded us all, that to serve is the best gift that anyone can give to all of mankind.
