This Ramadan, Makro, Muslim Hands and Voice of Cape are joining hands to make giving charity effortless. The campaign, which will run from 7 – 30 June, 2016, will provide Makro customers with the lowest in-store prices. With ease, shoppers will then be able to drop items of non-perishable goods at drop-off points as they exist, which will be packaged and delivered by Muslim Hands.
With more than 68 000 items under one roof, which ranges from groceries to outdoor furniture, Makro sees to needs of everyone.
And as Makro consistently works to keep its customers satisfied, the company is striving to give all customers value for their money, whilst encouraging shoppers to spare a thought for the less fortunate.
Marketing manager of Makro Ottery, Andre Pretorius, explained that Makro’s Ramadan special is not isolated to the general grocery items, but extends to appliances and all other household needs.
In an effort to assist as many people as possible, as part of its corporate social investment, Makro is donating R20 000 towards the campaign.
“This is the first time that we are going big and showing that Makro does make a difference in the community.”
Muslim Hands spokesperson Junaid Chafekar said that based on the variety that the store offers at rock-bottom prices, community members will be encouraged to visit the store, do their shopping, and give back to those less fortunate.
“Muslim Hands staff will be on hand to collect the items that you want to donate and place it in the collection bin – that is service!”
He said that this campaign grants individuals the opportunity to do more than spare a thought for the needy, but encourages everyone to be actively involved in humanitarian work in light of their busy lives.
VOC listeners can drop off their goods at Makro Ottery located on the corner of Ottery and Old Strandfontein Road.
