GO GEORGE staff always enjoy demonstrating care and compassion by giving of their personal time to the community on Mandela Day.
This year, as was the case in 2020, Covid-19 lockdown restrictions and safety measures limited the ways of reaching out and making a difference. However, there is always some way to send a message of care to those in need, and to support the organisations and volunteers dedicated to improving their lives.
Generous donations from the GO GEORGE staff in their personal capacity made it possible to deliver 20 care packs to the Phambili Refuge for Women and Children, as well as bread and soup ingredients to CREMHOG, an organisation providing food to the homeless, amongst other initiatives. A few staff members also decided to donate blood.
James Robb, GO GEORGE Manager, expressed the commitment of the bus service and all stakeholders to the upliftment of the George community. “Our staff’s personal contributions towards the Mandela Day initiative are but a token of our commitment towards building the caring society that Madiba has envisioned and strived for,” he said.
