The project was born out of a real need; families all over the country are struggling to make ends meet.
The Love Can Project is a community project that allows people who can afford more to donate non-perishable goods and toiletries to those in need. We hold regular drives to collect donations.
Cape Town has some very generous residents who are always keen to give back. Some people donate a can or two and others donate in bulk – all depending on what you can afford to spare.
Each drive has a theme such as tinned food, toiletries or even baby products. Donations are then sorted by our volunteers into care packages and redistributed to communities, schools and safe-houses in need.
With love – we can do anything!
The Love Can Project is one of many community projects in Cape Town, and it can be hard to know who you should support. That’s why we’ve teamed up with some great organisations who make sure our collections go to the people most in need.
We work closely with Soul Donations who help us to drive donations across Cape Town. Thanks to them we are able to offer drop off points in the city centre and in Century City.
The wonderful team at Newkidz on the Block help us to identify those people who are really in need of our help. They also facilitate handovers to ensure that all donations go where they’re intended.
We don’t just work with other awesome charities and community projects in Cape Town though, we facilitate Love Can Projects and events for businesses and organisations who want to give back.
Companies who’d like to work with us can choose to collect donations themselves or even to donate brand new items. We help them identify the items most needed and who needs them most so that they can be sure of making a real impact.
