Donations needed for fire victims

As victims of devastating fires in Khayelitsha and Vrygrond start to rebuild, Pick n Pay stores will be accepting donations on their behalf.

Collection points include all Pick n Pay stores in Cape Town and surrounding areas and Boxer stores in Khayelitsha.

You can also donate through the Pick n Pay online store at or make a cash donation at any Pick * Pay till point.

Suzanne Ackerman-Berman, director of transformation for Pick * Pay, said: “It is important we rally together to support families and communities in need. Our nearby stores assist by providing cooked meals, water, energy drinks and grocery items to those affected and to the on-site disaster management teams. “There is, however, an enormous need for donations, especially for blankets, towels, nappies, baby food, groceries, toiletries, clothing and shoes.”
