Hollywoodbets Malmesbury chose to support The Haven Night Shelter- Swartland as part of the Hollywoodbets My Community Programme for 2019/2020. Read on to learn more about the team’s donation.
The Haven Night Shelter- Swartland
This organisation provides shelter and support for people without a home.
They do this by offering rehabilitation opportunities, social welfare services, family reunification services, physical care and support to the homeless.
The Haven also creates awareness about homelessness and the factors related to it through various platforms.
The shelter aims to use all resources at their disposal to help reintegrate people into society.
The Swartland branch was opened in 2000, however the Haven has been operating for the past 40 years, providing support to the homeless based on the belief that no person should have to live on the streets.
The Hollywoodbets Malmesbury Team visited the shelter to hand over a DVD player, two wheelbarrows, three potjie pots, three food processors, two spades, two forks, two rakes, two step ladders and 13 baking tins.
The organisation’s Manager, Chantal Leng, was grateful for the Team’s generosity.
“The donation received will be useful for our soup kitchen, because now we will also be able to start a vegetable garden. We will be able to use the produce for the feeding scheme. Some of the produce from the garden will also be sold in order to generate an extra income for the shelter!” she said.
