Zululand Observer - Weekender
Madiba Day donations stream in
DONATIONS for Hang out with Madiba 2019 continued to stream in this week as community members made their way to Zululand Observer offices in Richards Bay and Empangeni to deliver boxes of clothing, blankets and soft toys.
The ZO’s annual Mandela Day initiative and its charity arm, Do I Care Enough? (DICE) attracted numerous businesses, schools, corporates and community groups who erected washing lines at different venues across the city.
This year was undoubtedly the most successful clothing collection drive, with lines going up at the Empangeni ZO offices, Richards Bay CBD, Hillside Aluminium, Port of Richards Bay (Transnet National Ports Authority), Foskor Richards Bay, Richtek campus, Mtunzini Primary School, Hollywood Bets Empangeni, King Cetshwayo District Municipality, Felixton College, Empangeni High School, John Ross College, Richards Bay High School, the Richards Bay police station, and various other small businesses.
