 “We have been inundated with calls from our customers who want to support these communities. The funds collected go to organisations working directly on relief efforts in the areas that need it most,” the supermarket chain said. 

The Group manages the Act for Change Fund on behalf of its customers and all the funds collected since the middle of last week will go to vetted organisations involved in relief efforts to help communities rebuild after the devastating effects of the unrest, vandalism and arson on many community members and their businesses.

 The Shoprite Group has always been committed to supporting communities in need and has been directing funds collected by the Act For Change Fund to communities affected by challenges such as drought, floods and COVID-19 since 2016.
