Algoa FM listeners can help spread the warmth this winter
Algoa FM listeners can once again help make an impact with the Algoa Cares Winter Woolly Week project by donating items to alleviate the strain of winter on the needy.

"Our listeners are dedicated to helping their community and they always respond to our call to action. They are the key to the success of this project and we are forever grateful", says PR and CSI Manager of Algoa FM, Jennilee Peremore.

Items will be collected at various intersections in Port Elizabeth, East London, Uitenhage and George on Friday morning, 6 June from 06.30am until 8am.

Vinny Nogemane will be collecting at the intersection of Old Transkei and Batting Roads and Gordon Graham at the intersection of Union Avenue and Crewe Road in East London.

Wayne and Lauren will be collecting at Moffet-on-Main, Kaycee and Lance at Stanford Road and Aubrey Street, Drew and Graham at the Five Ways intersection on Cape Road, and there will also be an Algoa FM team on the corner of Caledon and Church Streets in Uitenhage and in George at George South Primary, on the corner of Laing and Meade Streets.

"The annual Algoa Cares Winter Woolly Week has helped many needy people to keep warm during the cold winter months for over a decade and we look forward every year to growing this initiative", says PRO of Community Chest Eastern Cape, Colette Theron.

Warm donations can also be delivered to designated spots where Algoa FM branded donation boxes will be stationed for the entire month of June within the Garden Route area; namely Knysna Mall, Knysna/Plett Herald, Garden Route Mall, George Herald office, Langeberg/Mosselbaai Mall and Mossel Bay Advertiser.

All donations received in the Eastern Cape will be given to Community Chest-Eastern Cape. Donations received in Knysna will benefit the Knysna Lions Club and donations made in George and Mossel Bay will benefit the Eden Lions Club who will make sure that the donations benefit specific organisations in those designated areas according to the need.
