The Dis-Chem Foundation and 702 help Penelopele fill hungry tummies

Wednesday 23rd April 2014

Xolani Gwala announced a generous R120 000 donation from the Dis-Chem Foundation to the Penolopele drop-in centre in Alexandra township on his afternoon show on Talk Radio 702.

Founder of the centre, Sally Mashigo spoke to Xolani about the throngs of orphaned and vulnerable children who come to her centre each day for a meal and to enjoy a safe haven. The numbers fluctuate each day but sit around 150 children and she manages with only minimal state support.

She has two cooks who help her to prepare very basic meals and Sally told Xolani how she would love to be able to make these meals more nutritious, to include fruit and vegetables.

Fortunately for Sally and the Penolopele drop-in centre, Lynette Salzman from the Dis-Chem Foundation called in to share some good news. Lynette announced that Penolopele will become a new beneficiary of the Dis-Chem Foundation Food Garden project which is already feeding thousands of people.

She will also be donating a chest freezer, fridge and gas stove as well as a monthly cash donation of R10 000 to help with running costs and food.

“Keep on doing the good work,” Lynette said to Sally who was overwhelmed with emotion but managed a teary thank you to the Foundation.
