FIVE ways to help a local guy out

FIVE ways to help a local guy out

Be First!
by August 8, 2018 Charities, News

If there’s one thing we know for sure, it’s that there are SO MANY Sandton residents with big hearts, all looking for a way they can make a difference to the community.

Some of us have time, others have items at home that they would happily donate, and there are those that can giveĀ financially – they are just not sure where to begin.

We’ve done the research for you and have 5 WAYS YOU CAN HELP OUT IN 2018.

The Sandton SPCA

This is always a good place to start! As we mentioned in a previous article, the Sandton SPCA is looking for financial donations (via EFT or by making them a beneficiary on your Woolworths MySchool Card), donations of pet food and accessories, and people to volunteer.

The Tears Foundation in Sandton

The TEARS Foundation provides access to crisis intervention, advocacy, counselling, and prevention education services for those impacted by domestic violence, sexual assault and child sexual abuse. Confidential services are provided to all victims at no charge. The TEARS Foundation has also developed a system that uses a simple SMS code and GPS location to allow victims to connect with much-needed help from their nearest care centre.

This amazing organisation is looking for volunteers and financial donations that will help them continue their vital work. You can even donate via Snapscan or Zapper!

For Good

We love this website that matches willing participants with those needing help. Simply choose whether you would like to donate your time, money or find a cause close to your heart, and they will match you with relevant charities. Even better, you can choose a location close to your home or office!

HospiceWits Charity Shop in Parkmore

If you have a garage that needs clearing of furniture or cupboards filled with items you really don’t use, then HospiceWits needs to be on your radar screen. Even better – THEY COLLECT – which makes it a win-win all round. Alternatively pop by their shop (corner 11th Street and Elizabeth Avenue, Parkmore) and see if there is anything that grabs your fancy.

You can also donate a few hours of your time to work in the shop.

ParkRun and MyRun

Both the ParkRun in Bryanston (Saturdays) and MyRun at George Lee Park (Sundays) are looking for volunteers to help out. It’s not very time intensive but it does allow these FREE community Fun Runs to continue. Plus, this is something the whole family can do!
