The company operates more than 37 locations in South Africa
September 29, 2019: Stor-Age is supporting the Santa Shoebox Project for eight consecutive years, now in its 14th year. The company distributes gifts to underprivileged children in Namibia and South Africa during the winter holiday season. This time the company will provide up to four free shoeboxes per donor, after which the boxes are sold at R5 each. Donors can pick up the items at any of the company’s 50 locations.
After launching the project, Santa Shoebox has provided gifts to more than 850,000 children. The company hopes this time it will reach 100,000 children. Each completed box will contain eight items: toothbrush, toothpaste, washcloth, soap, toy, outfit of clothing, school supplies and sweets.
“We are incredibly excited to open pledging for 2019. This is a personal engagement for donors, as each name belongs to an underprivileged child in their community for whom they prepare a meaningful gift. Donors choose their beneficiary child in the knowledge that the shoebox they lovingly fill with treats and essential items will be handed directly to that very child. We encourage donors to include a note to the child—often the most valued part of the shoebox.” Said by Zelezniak, National projects manager for Santa Shoebox.
Stor-Age headquartered in Cape Town, operates properties in six South African cities. The company regularly supports charitable causes.
