Fueling the love for Community Chest Winter Woolly Drive

What used to be Winter Woolly Week has evolved into a drive. Community Chest together with Caltex Eastern Cape Marketers are hosting its annual Winter Woolly Drive during the month of June.

“This campaign is our biggest fundraising project and plays a vital role in our needy community. By supporting the Winter Woolly Drive you share some warmth with those less fortunate each winter” says Community Chest EC PRO, Colette Theron.

“We would like to encourage the people throughout the Eastern Cape to donate much needed warm goods, blankets and non-perishable food for the needy.  Donations can be dropped off at the Community Chest offices, 35 Clyde Street, Central. If you can’t drop you can give us a call on 041 582 15 92 and we will collect” added Theron.

Caltex Eastern Cape Marketer (CECM), headline sponsor for the 2017 Winter Woolly Drive, has been involved for more than five years as donor and by providing easily accessible and safe drop off point at various Caltex Service Stations throughout the Eastern Cape.

 “We are pleased to be able to add a smile to a young child or bring warmth and sustenance to the many less fortunate people in the Eastern Cape.

The CECM philosophy is to add value not only as the local fuel provider, but to support, uplift and care about the Eastern Cape communities around us.

We support projects that help us to produce well-rounded people who will contribute to the local economy and am very proud to have been involved with the Winter Woolly’s Drive for the past few years.” said CECM CEO Clive Berlyn.

Members of the public are invited to donate clothes and money at the following intersections collections on Friday, 30th June 2017.

  • William Moffett/Cape Road
  • M4/Walmer Boulevard

Bring a little warmth this winter and support the Community Chest Winter Woolly Drive.
