VOLUNTEER TO HELP THOSE IN NEED RISE AGAINST HUNGER

On Saturday 24 October 2020,

Rand Steam Shopping Centre in Richmond is hosting a meal packing event facilitated by Rise Against Hunger, in partnership with the Expresso Show and One Million Plus One.

Rise Against Hunger is an international hunger relief organisation that aims to irradicate hunger by the year 2030, and is doing so by mobilising necessary resources to those in need across the globe.

Sign up to volunteer an hour of your time at Rand Steam Shopping Centre by visiting www.rahafrica.org. Click on Volunteer and select the event taking place on 24 October to book a suitable timeslot. Walk-in registrations will only be available on a first-come-first-serve basis.

On the day, volunteers will receive gloves, hair nets and all necessary ingredients to help pack meals for those in need. Special guest Graeme Richards from the Expresso Morning Show will brief volunteers on the production line procedures. A large TV screen will showcase the number of completed donation boxes in real time and a bell will be rung to celebrate each one’s completion while members of the Expresso Show keep volunteers and passers-by entertained with interviews and music.

The aim is to pack 50 000 meal boxes by the end of the day, which will then be distributed to the beneficiary, Umpakathi, in Yeoville. Umpakathi’s activities range from hunger relief to crime prevention; their main goal being to restore Yeoville to its former glory.

Rand Steam Shopping Centre thanks those who are willing to partake in this drive to help alleviate hunger in its community. For more information, please contact Jade Sellers on 081 558 1996 or at jade@mseed.co.za.
