Central Gauteng Lions,Imperial Lions & Imperial Logistics announce partnership with NPO, FEED SA
Central Gauteng Lions (CGL), Imperial Lions and Imperial Logistics are proud to announce their partnership with the NPO, FEED SA. The partnership aims to assist in providing some relief and assistance to those communities affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, which will be in the form of food parcels, sanitizers, and the donation of masks. The relief will also be extended to the CGL Hubs, Regional Performance Centre, and other areas.
Two tons of food parcels were packed on Thursday 25 June at the Imperial Wanderers Stadium which will feed 1000 families. Each pack will feed up to a family of four members for two weeks so says CGL and Lions Cricket Head of Marketing, Commercial and Communications, Wanele Mngomezulu;
“The South African National Defence Force delivered all food parcels to Imperial Wanderers whereby they were packed into various vehicles. The parcels were transported to various clubs who assisted with the distribution to various families. Whilst a small gesture, we believe that every bit counts and really does go a long way.”
“During this pandemic, we have been fortunate enough to partner with organizations such as CGL, whose philanthropic activities have aligned with ours, and together we have been able to make a real difference in the lives of some of the most vulnerable people across South Africa. The far and wide distribution of the hampers will go a long way to alleviating food insecurity and anxiety for thousands of households. People have received essential aid, allowing them to stay home, isolate effectively, improve their sanitation, and ultimately help manage the spread of the COVID-19 virus.” commented FeedSA.
CGL CEO Jono Leaf-Wright says that the heartwarming experience will hopefully have provided some much-needed comfort to those in need.
“These are incredibly challenging times: Times that we’ve never yet experienced in our lifetime. I want to thank my team for taking charge of this initiative because it is so needed and absolutely appreciated by all those recipients. Let us all continue to do our bit and help feed South Africa.”
