Langa Soup Kitchen
Posted July 6, 2012on:
I plan to do a post in the future – hopefully next week – about my experiences with the Soup Kitchen, but for now I just wanted to give out some information in case you guys want to get involved…and please do get involved – volunteer, donate money/foods, spread the word, etc. Help out in whatever way you can. And don’t hesitate to contact me if you need more info.
Some info from the organisers:
“The soup kitchen will run every Saturday from 12am – 2pm until the 1 Sep 2012 in Langa.
The purpose of the soup kitchen is to aid the less-fortunate during the winter season. The aid provided will be soup, bread, sandwiches, and from time to time clothing and blankets.
We have put together our own money and resources to start the project, however we would like to expand and make it bigger and more successful. Thus welcome any contributions in any manner possible.
You can participate by volunteering and /or by donating. If you like to volunteer please confirm by Wednesday of each week as we have a limit. Please note that donations are not compulsory but it would make a huge difference in running the soup kitchen. Please indicate which area(s) you will be donating in.
See below for duties and donation details and help spread the word to your friends
The Duties for each Station would be the following:
1. Pouring soup
2. Handing out bread
