The Robin Hood Foundation recently handed out 120 GOGO Bags filled with food, clothes, toiletries and treats to the 120 community members from the 1000 Hills Community Helpers Centre.
“These incredible community members work tirelessly in the permaculture garden, on the immaculate grounds and play areas, in the kitchen, classrooms and clinic. The tenders of the gardens ask for no financial gain, just a few vegetables they have helped grow in this amazing garden,” says Cindy Norcott – Founder of The Robin Hood Foundation.
The Robin Hood Foundation volunteers also handed out fudge to the community children who are being looked after during the school holidays and loaves of bread and some biscuits to the little ones who were at school.
“Our Share Your Treasure campaign that aims to distribute pre-loved items into the hands and homes of local Gogo-headed homes, crèches and orphanages is still running and we would greatly appreciate the community’s support,” adds Cindy.
With your help, The Robin Hood Foundation hope to distribute more than 1000 GOGO Bags in the next three months to Inchanga, KwaDabeka and Ntshongweni.
“Simply share your treasure by donating any unwanted, yet still in good condition, household items such as clothing, linen, towels, accessories, handbags and shoes. All donated pre-loved treasures will be used in our GOGO bags – which is a food hamper filled with non-perishable food items such as maize, samp, rice, soya mince, sugar, tea, canned items as well as blankets and your second-hand clothing,” says Cindy.
Donations can be dropped off at any of the following drop off points:
- CGA Agencies (Pinetown)
- Broadway Pharmacy (Durban North)
- Wool ‘n Weave (Lillies Quarter – Hillcrest)
- Dormehl (Gillits)
- Washwell Laundry (Umhlanga).
“By sharing your pre-loved treasures you will literally be changing someone else’s life,” concludes Cindy.
