Woolies donates R 700 000 worth of product to public health care

| Social Responsibility

As lockdown measures have started to ease the Department of Health is gearing itself up for the anticipated increase in Covid 19 patients which will result in a shortfall of bed linen at public health care facilities.

In anticipation of this need for linen, Woolworths has donated over fourteen hundred sheets, blankets and towels as well as around two thousand pairs of Woolies shoes for healthcare workers who will be putting in long hours at public health care facilities, clinics and hospitals.  Over the upcoming weeks, leading disaster relief NGO Gift of the Givers Foundation will be distributing the product throughout the country to public health care facilities.

This donation comes not long after Woolworths with MySchool My Village My Planet fundraising programme donated R 500 000 to Gift of the Givers for PPE’s for healthcare workers.
